1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what to make with sari silk yarn on: January 07, 2008 02:00:32 PM
i just won 3 skeins of sari silk yarn on ebay.here are the particulars:

1/3 kilogram - 11.7 ounces - approx 240 yards)
Each Skein is 100 grams

How the Yarn is Made: Our yarn is the made from the same silk used to make the colorful Saris worn by many women in South Asia. When Saris are made on a mill, the ends of the silk fabric are trimmed off.  To keep this beautiful silk from going to waste, the fibers from the trimmed ends are handspun spun into recycled silk yarn. This cottage spinning industry benefits women's development groups, helping them generate additional income. 
Worsted Weight
Suggested needle size: US 8 - 10,    Metric 5 - 6 mm,    UK/Canada 6 - 4
Gauge: 12 - 16 stitches per 10 cm (3 - 4 stitches per inch
