Handspun Hope Borocera SilkRegular price $30.00
This Wild Borocera Silk, hand-spun in the central highlands of Madagascar will delightfully fill your craving for a stunning, hand-spun, "thick and thin" fiber.
This gorgeous yarn is imported into Rwanda in the single ply where the women of Handspun Hope ply and hand-dye it organically with mostly native Rwandan plants.
We are thrilled to support the women of Voajanahary cooperative. The purchase of this yarn helps the women to earn a living wage. New initiatives teach low-impact farming and help save the Madagascar forests while providing an incentive for local people to protect their trees.
