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 anopportunity. That is why we are bringing out this special 70% Eri silk roving, 30% Muga fiber. When customers buy this unique silk yarn traditions are revived and villages prosper.
Our Eri Muga Silk Sliver / Roving is made from Eri B Grade cocoons (70%) and Muga Waste cocoons (30%). This fiber has been processed in the mill where the fibers are blended together to create a light golden color. After the cocoons are degummed separately a machine is used to blend the fibers into a uniform consistent mixture. This roving fiber can be used for making various yarn types. The result, when spun, creates a subtle golden color yarn having a slight sheen. The texture of the yarn will be slubby because of the short fibers.
The natural color of this soft sliver/roving 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 ready to spin fiber. Not to mention the sustainable story behind this popular Eri silk.

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 100% Eri silk roving.
Our Eri Silk Roving is made from the short fiber of the cocoon. This fiber has been processed in the mill where the cocoons are separated into A grade and B grade and waste cocoons. After the cocoons are degummed a machine will separate the long and short fiber for making various yarn types. This roving is made from the short fiber of the B Grade cocoon.
Since this is a shorter fiber you may experience breakage, that's why we recommend it to experienced spinners. This roving is excellent for blending with other fibers that are easier to spin, like wool. The B grade cocoon and cocoon waste make the fiber slubby, which lends to a rustic type yarn.
