Sari silk waste. ‘Waste’ is word which in technical jargon indicates what is left at the end of the production process of textiles. In this case, the silk fiber we are presenting comes from the production process of silk fabrics used to make traditional Indian Saris. Unlike similar products on the market, the DHG silk waste comes from the production of raw (undyed) fabrics. This way, we can offer you a recycled materia (because we like to keep up our eco-friendly practices) which at the same time meets very high quality standards. Indeed, all of our colors are dyed in our plants in Italy, and therefore are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified. It is perfect for felting and hand spinning.
Since colours can vary depending on your device’s monitor settings, we recommend buying our Colour Chart so that you can check the colours with you own eyes before proceeding with the final order. Do you want to check the quality of the material? Buy our Sample Box.
ATTENTION: all of our colours tend to have a good level of hardiness to light and to washing. However, dark and bright colours when in the presence of alkaline or very aggressive soaps and prolonged processing or washing may show a loss of colour. Thus, for any materials dyed with these types of colours we recommend that you carry out a processing and washing test using a small sample before you proceed working on your final project. The above mentioned testing is positively essential if these materials are to be combined with raw or light coloured materials. It is also good practice to never dry the materials in direct sunlight, instead be sure to use low lighting.
