Shiny Thick Eri Silk Yarn Hank
Eri Peace Silk
150m per 100g ( this is an estimate only)
or 24 wraps per inch.
Hand made in Odisha, India.
It is a "peace silk" because the caterpillars are not destroyed in the cocoon. They are allowed to emerge as moths and live a full lifecycle similar to the Tussar silk.
Eri silk is spun rather than reeled. The Eri yarn has a different weight to the Tussar silk, it is heavier (like wool mixed with cotton but a lot softer). Colour: White
Great for weaving and other crafts - they also dye very easily, as well as being great for a wide range of textile techniques.
Please note: the colour of the sample may vary of thickness and texture. There may be joining throughout the yarn. If you are purchasing more than one, I will try and match them as well as I can. (For more information please feel free to email me)
