Hand spinning with a drop spindle is a tradition in villages that is slowly fading in our region of Northeast India. We see an opportunity. That is why we are bringing out this special 100% Eri silk handspun yarn. When customers buy this unique silk yarn traditions are revived and villages prosper.
Meghalaya is well known for Eri silk. The natural color of this yarn makes a classic handwoven fabric. The fiber of this silk has super soft cotton-like behavior.
The more it is worn, the softer it gets, and it is a great textile to weave or knit with. This is the popular peace silk yarn makers are talking about. Its texture is profoundly beautiful – always changing with the charismatic touch of imperfection.
