I just received a new package last night from Bihar, India.
5 Kilo’s each of Cotton Fesua, Cotton Salvage & Sari Silk.
The cotton fesua yarn (also known as throwster yarn) is the cotton waste from the carding of the cotton for spinning. The local villagers gather the waste and hand spin it into yarn.
The cotton salvage is the edges of the woven bulks of fabric that is cut off and discarded.
And the sari silk is the non usable threads from making silk saris. It also is hand spun into yarn.
All these “yarn” will be repurposed into new blankets and throws.
