I've seen some sari yarn before and it is so beautiful!

Maybe, you could cut multiple long and equal lengths if it and knot it at evenly spaced increments, leaving long tassel-like ends and you could use that as a decorative belt to wear loosely on your hips with a skirt, or with blue jeans?  I've seen simple belts like this that look very hip and stylish and the fiber wasn't anywhere as pretty as the sari silk.

They usually don't have very many knots, (4to5?) and I imagine the hardest part would be figuring out what lengths to cut the yarn, because the knotting will eat up some of the finished length.

Have you come up with any other ideas yet?
