NEW! Fabulous recycled sari silk yarn with low twist to reduce tangles. Super Premium is my thinnest recycled sari silk yarn; Premium, Art, and Uncarded are progressively larger.
This listing is for one hank of Super Premium handspun recycled sari silk yarn. It weighs 100 grams (3.5 oz) and is about 150 yards. You will receive the exact skein shown in the photos - the 3rd photo shows the reverse of the same hank, with a penny for scale. This is the only skein available in this unusual color combination.

If you've been frustrated by sari silk yarn in the past, give Super Premium a try - it's soft, smooth, and easy to work with. For a slightly bulkier yarn, see my "Premium" recycled sari silk yarn. If you like lots of texture, see my "Art Yarn." For fiber art, check out my bulky Uncarded silk yarn and Sari Ribbon. I can fit 2000 - 2400 grams of yarn into a Flat Rate Box, which ships anywhere in the US, insured, for just $12.80.

This recycled yarn is top quality. It is spun by a women's collective in Nepal with whom I work closely - your purchase helps these women escape poverty and send their children to school. Compared to lower-grade recycled silk yarn, the diameter and twist of this yarn are more consistent throughout the skein and it is soft, smooth, and clean. 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.

Please note, the shipping rates quoted below are for USPS First Class. For a small additional fee, I can ship by Priority Mail instead [within the US, Priority shipping for this item costs $4.90].
