Episode 111: Sustainable Handspun Eri Silk Fibers with Muezart of Meghalaya India 

by Sarah Resnick

This week on the podcast, I'm excited to be talking to the team at Muezart Yarn. Muezart is a small business in Northeast India that focuses on making and selling handspun, naturally dyed Eri Silk to weavers, knitters, crocheters, and other fiber artists. I first found out about them about a year ago when they mailed a sample card to our studio, and I was absolutely captivated by the rich and vibrant colors they created from plants. Over several zoom calls with their team over the past year I learned much more about their processes and the ways they work with their communities, and have been looking forward to sharing their stories with our podcast audience for many months.

One thing to note, this episode was recorded a few months ago, before COVID-19 had hit India. We waited to air this episode at their request because of the lockdown in India, so that they could be ready to ship yarn to interested listeners. They are now able to ship again, and they are a wonderful group of people, making beautiful yarn, which they ship worldwide - so if this episode sparks your interest, definitely go check out their website and support their shop.Comment below to keep the conversation going!
