Our Eri Silk Roving is made from a waste cocoon. This roving is excellent for blending with other fibers that are easier to spin, like wool. Spinning from this fiber will result to a rustic type of yarn.
You can spin a fine lightweight yarn for weaving and a medium-weight yarn for Knitting.
This fiber can also be used for spinning, weaving, carding, dyeing, paper making, blending with other fibers, and felting.
