I picked up some sari silk yarn today at the local wool store, Wool Trends. It’s fabulous stuff and should prove eminently useful as I work through some of my next projects (another couple of books, a series of boxes and some bowls and vases). I have great hopes for it!
As an aside, Wool Trends is one of those fabulous shops that is crammed with all sorts of fibres.
One that caught my attention, apart from the sari silk, was Seasilk, a seaweed fibres and silk composite. I almost bought some and may yet go back for it (I just need a definitive purpose for it, as it was expensive). Have a look at the colours. They truly are as vibrant as they appear in the photos and the feel of the stuff….. it’s like flexible pussy-willows that drape like they were a part of your skin. Amazing stuff. All I need is a use for some….
