Mango Moon Vest...

My Mango Moon Vest, this is a wonderful wear. It feels soft and like a hug. I feel like the spirit of the women who wore the saris and recycled it are around me. It truly feels wonderful. When I first made it and tried it on for the first time I did not want to take it off.

I added a little "hang up" hook.

And a scarf to go with it.

Mango Moon Yarn in recycled silk, ladies in Nepal recycle their saris and spin yarn. Mango Moon Recycled Silk yarn helps women who have been rescued from abusive situations. The women who come to the shelter are able to use their spinning and knitting skills to rebuild their lives, while continuing to care for their children. Proceeds provided a safe shelter, health care, education, and the dignity of financial independence.

Ana, thank you for including this information on your blog. I've been wondering about Mango Moon and wanting to make a big bag out of the sari silks yarns ever since seeing it mentioned in KR.

I love your blog. Keep on knittin'!

I bought my first skein of the recycled silk yarn. I have loved it for a long time, but had several items in progress. Now I would like to make a shawl or vest. Must find the right pattern for this wonderful yarn.

The idea of recycling anything is my thing and I am addicted to beautiful yarns.
