------------------
This listing is for 8.8 oz of roving made from 100% silk. It is exceptionally soft and smooth. You can use it as is, blend it with other fibers, and/or dye it. When unrolled, this roving is over 18 feet long (there are two bricks, each about 9 feet long). Limited additional quantities are available, convo me if you need more. This roving is not a bright bleached white, it is an undyed natural white.

I also carry baby camel roving, white banana fiber, and colorful recycled sari silk fiber. To see all the fiber listings in my Etsy shop, click here:

In the interest of full disclosure, unlike my recycled sari silk fiber, this silk roving is not a fair trade item. In the past I limited myself to fair trade organizations, but that prevented me from obtaining certain types of eco-friendly products whose processing requires machinery typically owned by large factories. I selected this particular Chinese factory because of their progressive attitude towards women in the workplace. Most Chinese factories that I worked with in my prior career as a fashion designer were staffed largely by young Asian women who had no opportunity for career advancement; all management positions were held by men. The factory that produced this silk roving has female executives.

International buyers: convo me for a shipping quote if your country is not listed below, if you prefer Priority Mail, or if you want to buy multiple items.
