Meghalaya is the land of Eri silk cocoons. The tradition of spinning and weaving is slowly fading in our region of Northeast India. That is why we want more makers to spin with this special 100% Eri silk top.
Our Eri Silk Top is made from the long fiber of the A-grade cocoon. It has a beautiful sheen. Wait till you get your hands on this easy-to-spin longer staple. This fiber has been processed in the mill where the cocoons are separated into A grade and B grade and waste cocoons. After the cocoons are degummed a machine will separate the long and short fiber for making various yarn types.
The natural color of this soft silk top is the fiber that artisans are looking for. The protein fiber is fantastic for dying with plant-based dyes. Spinners love getting their hands on this longer ready-to-spin fiber.
