What is Sari Silk Ribbon?
Sari silk ribbon has become an increasingly popular craft textile over the past few years. It is a beautiful product that has been created from what would otherwise be textile waste. In India and Nepal, when silk fabric is cut and made into saris, wraps, and veils, there is always a bit left over. Rather than throw that waste fiber into the trash, it has been made into a beautiful, unique, soft yarn! This yarn is a truly recycled product! It is a bulky weight and is soft and easy to knit, crochet, braid, and weave. It is made by tearing the leftover fabric into strips and then sewing them together end to end to create one continuous length of ribbon. You can then use the ribbon for various craft projects.
