I have not dyed or woven this silk yet, only knit it into a "blank" for dyeing weft. I will know more later, however, I love the way it feels in my hands and can hardly wait to discover the textile I will make.
I have worked professionally weaving and dyeing silk for over 30 years. The Eri silk does feel like cotton, but my hands tell me it is most assuredly silk.
Thank you for taking the time to share a lovely review with us.
I cannot wait to see what you create with our Eri Silk yarn but I have a feeling that it will be lovely and beautiful.
Eri silk does look like Eri Silk but the one thing that differentiates and makes it unique is the feel. The feel that it is slow-made and the story behind the making of our yarn.
I hope to see your creations soon!
Thanks again for the review and for being such a great customer.
Miranda, Team Muezart
Their product and customer service are both excellent!
We're so happy to hear you had an awesome experience with our customer service.
We’d love to continue providing great service to awesome customers like you. Thanks again!
I just love this yarn (this is not my first purchase). It’s bit of rustic adds so much personality to my weavings. It’s dyeability is amazing as well. It soaks up my natural dyes and shows them off beautifully.
Thank you Tedi. We can't wait to see what you make with the yarns you bought! Seeing you dyeing our yarn and making something new encourages us especially during this pandemic. We hope you are staying safe!
I love it!! The feel, the hand, the drape, the texture, it’s gorgeous!! I can’t wait to order more! Also I can’t wait to see how it takes natural dyes.
Patricia, we can't wait for you to order more!! Thank you for the kind words :)
Lovely yarn, just what I hoped for. Also happy to support this undertaking. Unfortunately there was a $28 import charge on top of the $16 shipping, so $44 costs on top of the $50 (excellent value) price of the yarn. This makes me sad. The yarn will make something very special though!
Thank you for being part of Muezart's Eri silk yarn venture. We love connecting to conscious customers like you. At the same time, we hear your feedback about the Import Fees in UK/EU. We can't change that :-(
As a company, we did make a change to lower our shipping fees. In the long run, we expect this cut will result in more UK sales and help our vision to regenerate our people and Eri silk in the villages of Meghalaya.
