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 Tops / Roving is made from the long fiber of the A grade cocoon. It has a beautiful sheen. Wait till you get your hands on this easy to spin longer staple. 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.
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. Not to mention the sustainable story behind this popular peace silk.
