This listing is for 1oz of hand dyed Pulled Silk. This is 100% silk and is from India.
I make each and every batch myself, and can also custom dye any colors you might want!
This fiber is actually recycled, and is eco-friendly! It comes from saris made in India, and is created when the sari-silk remnant threads are pulled out and fluffed up, creating a cloud of silky goodness. Instead of throwing it out, it is purchased by fiber artists for all sorts of uses:
*Spinning - It has a short staple length and is great to spin alone, to core-spin, or to blend with other fibers in art batts and rolags.
*Etc. The possibilities are endless!
Don't confuse this fiber for our ButterSilk™ which has a longer staple length and more shine and softness. This fiber does have some shine to it, but not as much as ButterSilk™. It is completely different, though some ButterSilk™ colorways do also have pulled silk in them. This fiber is more textural and a little bit rough in comparison to ButterSilk™, but incredibly fun to add to batts or rolags.
By default, it is dyed then fluffed up into a loose fiber cloud. It can also be sent in its sliver/roving form if you prefer.
