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. Due to the super-slow, handmade nature of this yarn, expect occasional breaks. The skeins are double twisted - 2 X 50g skeins are twisted into an approximately 100g double-skein.
