Wool Peddler: Recycled Silk & Banana Silk Yarns, Handpainted & Handspun Yarns About Recycled Sari Yarns: Recycled Silk yarn is undoubtedly the most unique yarn you will ever encounter. Silk thrums from India's weaving mills are handspun by women's cooperatives and cottage industries into gleaming silk skeins. Using their traditional skills they are able to create vibrant, textured yarn in a endless array of colorways. Each Recycled Silk skein is handspun creating natural inconsistencies and a rather scrappy nature; to make any project, no matter how simple in design, instantly charming and unique. We import the finest yarns available, direct from Nepal. The colors are vibrant and it is spun evenly.
