Soft, shiny, with lots of beautiful texture from the Sari Silk.
Cochineal is a small insect native to tropical and subtropical South America through southern North America . It lives on cacti in the genus Opuntia more commonly known as prickly pear cacti. They are then collected by brushing them off the plants, and dried. When heated they yield a red-pink dye of incredible vibrancy and strength.
Colour Description- Hot Pink with lime streaks
This range of fibres will use the same fibre composition, and the collection will rotate through different colours and collections over time. Some colours will be restocked, and others may be temporary to allow space for other colours. Even if a colour is restocked the nature of the sari silk means it's unlikely that the next batch will be the same "dye lot". If consistency is going to be vital for your project please bear this in mind.
