Eri silk fiber is known as one of the most durable fabrics in the world. The cotton-like behavior of Eri has a rougher texture and is heavier than other silks but it can be spun into finer and shinier material.
The more it is worn, the softer it gets, and it is a great textile to weave with. This is the popular peace silk yarn artists are talking about. Its texture, especially when woven with handspun yarn, is profoundly beautiful – always changing with the charismatic touch of imperfection.
