What is Premium Sari Silk Handspun Yarn
It’s finally time to talk about our OG yarn: Premium Sari Silk Handspun Yarn! This is the first signature yarn that Nicole started working with when she started Darn Good Yarn! She noticed that the skeins would arrive and be different shades, mostly a mix of pinks, purples, and reds. Instead of getting frustrated, she embraced the uniqueness of the handmade yarn and well…we’ve been unique ever since!
How Is Premium Sari Silk Handspun Yarn Made
Made out of 100% reclaimed and recycled sari silk fabric, our artisans first tear the fiber by hand before spinning it into yarn. The torn fabrics are first sorted to be cleaned to ensure nice clean recycled yarn! The yarn is all spun by hand, where the artisans spin in all the different gorgeous colors that make up the uniqueness that is our premium yarn.
