Nepalese Sari Silk Yarn, grade B:  This yarn has been carefully hand bathed with a fabric softener then allowed to sun dry, creating a soft, silky and almost fluffy yarn that is slightly under spun, perfect for people who like to work with a bulkier silk yarn. The washing process also tends to make the colors blend into one another a little more seamlessly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nepalese Sari Silk Ribbon Yarn:  This yarn is hand-spun with twisted bits of silk fabric remnants from sari silk mills.  It is not a soft yarn, but it's good for heavier fabrics such as bags, mats, rugs, or hard-wearing garments like vests. Currently unavailable.
