Weaving with OmShanti

We introduced our two commercially spun Eri Silk yarns, OmShanti-White and OmShanit-Red, in February 2023.  If you missed it, CLICK HERE, as there’s a lot of information that’s helpful background.

We are excited about OmShanti! Commerically spun White Eri Silk yarn is rare and we believe this is the first time Red Eri Silk has been commerically spun. It's so light and airy!

In the introduction story, I suggested that using the whiter OmShanti-White and the creamier OmShanti-Red together would make an elegant white-on-white project.

Robin Wilton, a weaver with 40+ years and who has collaborated with Treenway Silks on several weaving projects, was up to the challenge—and here are her gorgeous scarves!

Just in time to weave for Mother’s Day, summer weddings, graduation gifts or evenings out at your favorite restaurant! The understated elegance of white-on-white is classic.
