This delightfully soft 20/2 Nm silk yarn is mill spun from the naturally occurring white colour of Eri silk and is also known as Ahimsa Silk or Peace Silk. This is another special silk from Assam in India. The silkworm cocoons are collected and used AFTER the moth emerges, thus making this suitable for vegans.
Eri Silk is usually spun, not reeled as the fibres are short. It retains more air and hence have better thermal insulation properties than reeled silk. It looks like wool mixed with cotton, but has the "scrooch" and softness of silk.
The mill spun yarn are most regular in colour and appearance when compared to the handspun silk.
