The blend of 50% Recycled Sari Silk and 50% Wool is rare and unusual in the yarn world. The wool and the silk are not blended before handspinning, so along its length it varies between being visibly silk or visibly wool - crazy unique! Enjoy the texture and weight of this yarn. It is handspun, and handwound into skeins. Due to the super-slow, hands-on nature of this yarn, expect variation in skein sizes.
