Meghalaya is the land of Eri silk cocoons. The tradition of spinning and weaving is slowly fading in our region of Northeast India. We see an opportunity. That is why we want more makers to spin with this special Erino Tops roving.
Our Erino Silk Tops is made from the long fiber of the A grade cocoon and the wonderful and softest Merino from Spain. Erino fiber takes 30% of Eri silk and 70% of Merino wool to make our silk tops a blend of classic and elegant fiber, which has an unbelievably softness of merino and the subtle glow of raw silk!
The natural color of this soft silk top is the fiber that artisans are looking for. The protein fiber is fantastic for dying with plant-based dyes. Spinners love getting their hands on this longer ready to spin fiber.
