You’ll find skeins of recycled silk sari and silk chiffon, along with pieces of our favorite linen blend and a cotton velvet. The combination of textile variations and dyes included creates a stunning range of colors from soft pastels to moody mauves. Explore deep purples, soft yellows, vibrant pinks and neutral tones.
