About Sari Silk Yarn
100% RECYCLED: Our 100% recycled Sari silk yarn is available in beautiful one of a kind, multi-color arrangements. These beautiful colorways are created by first hand-tearing recycled saree's, or the remnants from the sari manufacturing process and then sewing, or tying, the strips together to form one continuous strand. The resulting yarn is silky soft, a treat for the eyes - absolutely divine!
Eco-Friendly - Revolution Fibers’ 100% Recycled Sari Silk Yarn is made from the remnants of the sari (saree) industry in India. Women in local villages collect the silk fabric remnants and fibers that would typically be discarded and spin them together creating a continuous strand of sari silk yarn, which is then would into a colorful skein. The funds earned from making recycled sari yarn help support their families while keeping these scraps from being added to a landfill.
