Packs of silks selected for a spinner. From the top, Turquoise and Teal Ocean mix, the last two layer are both Fiesta. The buyer wanted a vivid section of Fiesta (middle) and a cooler flow, as shown in bottom pack.

This is what a 20 metre unfurled coil of Fiesta sari silk sliver looks like. It has a beauty and life of its own!

Autumn Leaves

Rich russet, caramels and toffee with flash of light jade green.
Autumn Leaves is such a smart, warm and sassy mix
I always unfurl the sliver to show the run of colours in each length, particularly if the customer is looking for a special signature hue. Note the different green hues and the burnt out red embers.

A cooler flow of Autum showing a neutral ashen streak.
From left to right… Sari silk ribbons in Turquoise, navy blue, Russet Frizz with a bangle to try out Boho silk wrap jewellery. Some Brocade ribbons nestle into the left of a mini skein of Fiesta, flanked on the right by a goodly amount of Autumn Leaves. Ready for dispatch. Weaving with the ribbons and spinning with silks!

Above and below – it is still Autumn. Think of the possibilities of spinning with this silk fibre…

Purple Jewel. The spinners’ darling.

Purple Jewel defies description.
Sumptuous mix of every colour – but most strikingly – purple.

  1. You have a lovely collection of sari silk fibers there. I have never used them for spinning as I am still not good at that, but I do use them a lot in my felting. I love how the fibers make different textures on the wool and sometimes you get some nice metallic threads in there. I will pull a piece off like roving and then spread them out from the side in little clouds. There are so many ways to use them. 🙂
