Sari Silk - Sari Silk is a recycled fiber from the leftovers of the Sari silk industry. It is carded, then it is pulled into a thin textured roving. It is basically threads so thicker than a Mulberry silk sliver.
DYES: The sari silk may retain some residual color from the dyeing process. Washing will not affect the level of color in your fiber. Since heavy metals are not used in these dyes some colors such as pink and turquoise may run slightly when washed. This is not a matter of too much dye being used. I recommend washing all hand dyed items separately.
WASHING: For washing this fiber please use COOL to COLD water. You may use a wool wash if you wish. Sari silk should never be washed or rinsed in anything but cool or cold water.
PHOTOGRAPHS: All photographs have been done with an Ott light for color accuracy and an iphone 13. PLEASE NOTE - that I have NO control over the differences from color monitor to color monitor and also the brightness of your lighting in your computer or phone.
STORAGE: All fiber is braided and sealed in plastic. This is great for saving space and for easy transport. If you are going to store your fiber, store it loosely and allow it to breathe. Otherwise wool can compress and even felt if left sealed in plastic. It is best to store away from heat, sunlight, and moisture.
My business is in my cat friendly smoke free home. The dye studio and fiber rooms are cat free. My kittens have a lot to say about that!
