Oh for the love of Recycled Silk
This is my most recently posted recycled silk item. The silk comes from the manufacturing of saris as the ends are cut. Those end are then spun into yarn by woman throughout the Himalayan mountains. What an amazing thing! The yarn itself already has a history when it arrives.
I'm excited about this particular hat because it is a thicker and fuzzier silk than I have worked with before. Also the colors are deep and rich. I look forward to it finding a great home. On to my knitting, have a fabulous day, and don't forget to take my poll!
