It’s just like Christmas each time a new batch of Pulled Sari Silk Fiber, 1/4 lb bag color 0000 arrives. Every box unveils silky fibers galore in an array of colors. We never know what to expect. What fun! This time around we have a subtle fiber base reminiscent of pinky, gray granite in which a whole host of other colors are intermixed. It’s sometimes tricky to envision just how these fibers will play out in different mediums so we’ve done a bit of experimenting. Take a look, see what you think, and then get creating. Need a little incentive? Pulled Sari Silk Fiber is on sale, regularly $8.75, NOW $6.75 per 1/4 lb bag. Remember, fiber doesn’t spoil so grab a bag or two to put away for a rainy day of playing with silk.
We carded the Pulled Sari Silk Fiber with black, grey and white wool, spun a few yards, then knit tiny swatches. Those of you familiar with Peace Fleece Yarn will see similarities. A great yarn for cool weather accessories like hats, mitts, scarves and cowls. Up next… felting. A fine layer of silk on the outer layer of balls and beads produces wonderful results. How perfect for felted jewelry. My favorite felt sample is a thin layer of silk on top of magenta wool. I see gorgeous felted bags and hats in the future. Now that we’ve got you started, what will you create?
