A colorful recycled fiber collected from the by-products of the Sari industry, this fiber has been pulled into a thin roving. Perfect for blending, felting, and spinning, these are highly saturated rovings with lovely color variation. To say that these fibers are mesmerizing is an understatement, sprinkle them liberally to bring life to any project!
Blending with Recycled Sari Silk Roving:
In this Fiber Club tutorial, we teach you how to make your own tweed yarn out of Recycled Sari Silk Rovings and Cheviot wool (any wool will work, try your favorite type of wool) using an Ashford Wild Drum Carder and a Louet S10 Spinning Wheel.
The History of the Sari:
The sari has a long history in India, with the first depiction of saris in sculptures dating back to 100 B.C. The variety of colors, woven patterns, textures, and draping styles make the sari one of the world's most intricate and widely varied traditional garments. Today in India approximately six and a half million people are employed handweaving saris.
