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 are bringing out this special 100% Eri silk cocoon cakes.
Eri silk cakes are degummed cocoons that have been flattened and are ready to make fiber.
Eri Silk is also known for its special properties with its low conductivity and thermal properties making it an all-weather yarn. So, whether you’re looking for a summer yarn or winter yarn Eri Silk can play both characters.
The raw Eri silk is mainly used for spinning yarn. This ready-to-spin fiber can be pre-draft which makes it easy to control the twist and size of your yarn choice while spinning. Cocoon cakes can be carded and used for soap making, felting, and other craft projects.
Our hand-processed cocoon fibers are excellent for novice spinners. Easy to work with, very versatile, and works great for other craft fibers.
