This listing is for 1oz (additional weight can be selected using the dropdown menu for a discount) of our wonderful undyed white Pulled Silk. This is 100% silk and is from India.
It is *incredibly* difficult to find pulled silk that is undyed, so this fiber is an extra special treat. You will notice that even though it's white, there are some threads in it with different colors. This silk can be dyed any color you can dream up, and takes dye like a champ.
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 possiblities are endless!
Don't confuse this fiber for our ButterSilk™ which has a longer staple length and more shine. 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.
By default, it comes as roving, though some pieces may be broken here and there due to the nature of the fluffy fiber. If you have any questions just ask, and thank you for looking!
