Seaweed Thick – Undyed

£7.00

Our seaweed is gathered by hand in the river hoogly in India, then dried naturally and hand spun by local artisans.

 

It is spun in the same environment as sari yarn so does pick up a few sari threads from this. We try to remove as many as possible but a few may remain, they are easy to pull out of the ply.

 

The seaweed is probably closest to dishcloth cotton but if you would like a sample before ordering please get in touch.
