Organic Eri Silk - Handspun Yarn
Eri Silk is also known as Endi or Errandi Silk (Ahimsa Silk), is a multivoltile silk spun from open ended cocoons, unlike other varieties of silk. Eri is a product of domesticated silk worm.
Eri is called as Ahimsa ("Non Violence Silk" or "Peace Silk") yarn, because of the moth/worm inside the cocoon is not killed in the process of making the silk yarn. Before Eri cocoons go for processing, the moth/worm cuts its way out of the cocoon. As a result, this yarn is highly in demand in International market. In India, this kind of cocoons and yarns are found in North-eastern part of India, like Aasam, Bihar, Orissa.
