Hi I'm Alan and I'm a man who knits and I love to knit and play with Darn Good Yarn. Now one of the things that I like about the company is it takes the things that normally would be thrown away and allows a group of people to make them sustainable and bring them into a viable product. And this is one of those viable products sari silk yarn. It's made from saris, been recycled and reused. And this one is called ultra violet which it is it's really a beautiful purple and what's cool about it is, as I unwind it or try anyway it's a couple of things that are cool about it. First of all the fact that it's reused, something that would have been in a landfill and never decomposed so here it is it's pretty durable. If you knit with this or crochet and I'm not a big crocheter, I'm a knitter if you knit with this you're gonna find it's even more durable.
Now when you work with this stuff you're gonna create, it's not going to be like regular wool or silk and it's gonna be a little bit bigger so if you've had a bigger needle and you could go anywhere from a US, I don't know maybe a 15, on up depending on what you wanted to create. So and here we have a lot of different two other colors and there are a lot of different colors that you can choose from these are kind of neat, A because of the colors and B, because what they can turn into.
