This recycled yarn is top quality. Compared to lower-grade recycled silk yarn, the diameter and twist are more consistent throughout the skein and it is soft, smooth, and clean. This yarn is spun by a women's collective in Nepal whom I've worked with for years; your purchase helps these women escape poverty and send their children to school. As with all recycled silk yarn, it may not be completely colorfast when wet - I recommend handwashing separately in cold water with a gentle detergent. If needed, use a bit of fabric softener to maintain softness.
If you have severe allergies to metal, then it may be best to avoid recycled silk yarn due to the fact that it may contain tiny amounts of metallic thread, a popular embellishment for saris.
