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 sliver/roving.
Our Eri Silk Sliver / 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.
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 peace silk.
