If you like recycled cloth crafts, use this beautiful Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon Yarn from Darn Good Yarn to crochet ribbon yarn patterns. The dyed silk ribbon will bring intense color and life to your crochet projects. These yarns are made of silk ribbons torn from old saris or fabric that is left over during sari manufacturing. These silk ribbons are then sewn together at each end to create a skein of ribbon yarn. The Tibet Jewels yarn we reviewed comes in a 100g, 130 ft. skein, while the purple ribbon yarn comes in a 100g, 180 ft. skein of yarn. Notice that the length of the ribbon is given in feet, not yards, so you will need to calculate the amount of yarn you need for a project accordingly. Because the ribbons are hand-torn by working women in India and Nepal, the ribbons are fairly wide. This allows your projects to better showcase the gorgeous colors of the silk. Although the yarn doesn't come with an official weight designation, it is generally used as a bulky yarn. You will want to crochet using a large hook between sizes K and M to get the most out of this jewel-toned ribbon.

Not only is this yarn beautiful, it's also kind to the earth and kind to society. You can feel good about using recycled sari yarn in your ribbon yarn patterns. Darn Good Yarn repurposes and upcycles scraps of fabric that would otherwise be unusable. They also ensure that the women who create the yarns are paid fair wages for their labor. By using recycled sari yarn, you reduce your carbon footprint and support women who are working to feed, clothe, and shelter their families in difficult economies. Try the Tibet Jewels ribbon yarn for a rainbow of jewel-tones in your next project. Or, if you'd like a more monochromatic color scheme, try one of the solid yarns like the purple we reviewed. These yarns contain ribbons from saris of the same color, but the different intensities and shades of each color will add an amazing depth to your finished product.
