Shanta - 100% Eri (Wild Silk) Yarn--handspun on Takhli Spindle, 10/1 (cobweb weight)

Price: $21.70

This yarn is special as it is hand-spun by villagers in India who deliberately create a rustic, uneven yarn.  Because each individual spinner has hand-crafted equipment, each piece is unique--which makes the each skein size (weight and length) unique.

Our skeins sizes vary a bit in size, ranging between 45-100grams, with the average skein being 70 grams. 

We’ve listed the price for the AVERAGE weight skein.  We charge by the gram, so if your skein is a bit lighter, you’ll pay a bit less and if your skein is a bit heavier, you’ll pay a bit more.  If you need specific yardage for a project, please let us know in the comments section at check out so we can select the correct skein(s) for you. 

Once your skein is pulled and weighed, we will adjust your price and then process your credit card. We will call you if we have any questions.

Color: Natural  OR…for any of 100+ colors, order this yarn and then go to ‘Dye My Order’ to have your silk dyed for you.  Or shop Treenway Silks’ Color Now! yarns

Yarn Name Meaning: Peaceful, Calm (Hindi, Sanskrit)
