Do you know what this is?
It's an amazing new (to me!) supply for crafting: recycled sari silk! I had never heard of this before my in-the-know friend Susan pointed it out to me. She used it for the hair and mouth of her hurricane doll, and apparently lots of other crafty people are using it for knitting, crochet, and jewelry making. I bought this on Etsy from Willow Mist Acres. It arrived really quickly and it seems like a great price for so much loveliness--just $9 for 50 yards. It is composed of yard-long strips of silk, each about 2" wide, that are sewn end-to-end, so it's one long piece, perfect for knitting (with really big needles!); but for crafting purposes you can just cut out the color you want to use. I don't have a plan for using this yet, but I like having it nearby so when inspiration strikes, I will be ready!
