Lustrous shades of antique gold on pure eri silk. This singles silk yarn is lustrous and soft, and keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. Dyed with buckthorn bark, and a touch of organic walnut husks and madder roots.
This silk comes from Meghalaya, where the Eri silk moths are reared in homes and backyards, and is harvested after the moths have hatched.
100% eri silk, 100g/300m per skein, needle size: 4mm
Yarn caking service available here.
I use only colours and fibres from nature: Walnut husks, indigo, buckthorn bark and madder roots as my go-to dyestuff. And yarns that I carefully source from environmental and ethical initiatives, and from small family farms.Learn more
You can use the wool wash program of your washing machine, or gently wash by hand in lukewarm water using detergent or soap for wool and silk. Gently squeeze the suds through the fabric, taking care not to rub the fabric too much, and avoid steep changes in water temperature as this may cause shrinkage. Rinse the garment in clean water, squeezing gently without twisting or wringing. A short light spin in the washing machine will help remove most of the water. Dry naturally away from direct heat such as radiators and sunlight. Never use a tumble dryer!Buy Washing Soap
