This was hand knitted by me using recycled banana silk.
The colours are rich velvet purples, with touches of oranges, yellow, teal blue, sea green and pink. It has a really opulent feel about it - very rich and heavy.
The colours may vary from shawl to shawl as each skein is spun differently.
This banana silk originates from Nepal where cooperatives buy sari remnants from sari factories. These are then shredded and hand spun to create beautiful silks with amazing shine and texture. No two yarns are the same. These yarns are fairly traded.
This measures 22" by 65".
Please note this shawl is knitted to order and so can take up to 10 days to be sent out - I'll keep you fully informed by convo when its ready.
This shawl can also be ordered in any of the colours of my other Recycled Sari or Banana Silk items. Please convo me and let me know which colour you would like.
