Erino Top


Weight

Meghalaya is the land of Eri silk cocoons. 

The tradition of using silk fibers for spinning and weaving is slowly fading in our region of Northeast India. That is why we want more makers to use more of Eri silk fibers for spinning, like the Erino Top.  

Our Erino Silk Top is made from the long silk fibre of the A grade silk cocoon and the wonderful and softest Merino from Spain.  

Erino silk fibre takes 30% of Eri silk and 70% of Merino wool to make our silk tops a blend of classic and elegant fibre, which has an incredibly smooth texture of merino and the subtle glow of raw silk which adds to the properties of silk fibres 

The 100% natural colour of this soft Eri silk top is the fiber that artisans are looking for. The protein silk fibres for spinning are fantastic for dying with plant-based dyes. Spinners love getting their hands on this longer ready to spin Eri silk fibre

    A Perfect Blended Fiber

    This truly is the perfect blended yarn! Although touted as the perfect yarn for knits and weaves that are worn close to the skin, I’ve shied away from Merino/silk blended yarns. The Merino part is typically “super washed,” a chemical process that is dangerous to groundwater. Also, the silk is most often bombyx, and I don’t believe an animal should have to die to make my clothing. I’ve played around with mixing natural Merino with Eri silk, in the past, but MueZart has already done it for me! The fiber is luxurious to feel, beautiful to look at, and spins easily and quickly. This is my “go to” fiber pre-blended fiber. MueZart, you’ve done it, again!

    Cathe, thanks so much for your thoughtful and detailed review. This is incredibly helpful.
    It means so much when our best customers share their experiences.

    I'm glad we were able to meet your expectations!

    Best,
    Miranda
