Darn Good Yarn ombre reclaimed chiffon yarn pack - 4 skeins of reclaimed silk blend yarn for crochet, knit, or sakiori weaving


This listing is for a kit and NOT a finished product.

This market tote kit was created by "Darn Good Yarn" and contains 4 skeins of Darn Good Yarn's Chiffon Ribbon Yarn. This yarn is created with reclaimed saris and other lightweight items. Darn Good Yarn helps to support sustainable and fair jobs around the globe and I am proud to be offering their products!

Each kit contains 4 skeins of chiffon ribbon yard in an ombre colorway and a printed crochet pattern to create a Market Tote. This kit does NOT contain a crochet hook. You will need a size 10.5/k(6.5mm) crochet hook. Please select the kit color you would like using the pull down menu.

Each skein of yarn is 75 yards and is a silk and polyester blend. This yarn is wispy and lightweight. It was much easier for me to work with than I expected. I have little crochet experience but was able to create the bag seen in the first photo using the "Lipstick" colorway.

The base of the tote is made with a sturdy, single crochet stitch and the sides are worked up in double crochet for great stripes of color. This is simple project with stunning results!

The size of the finished bag measures about 10.5 inches (26.7 cm) width x 7.5 inches (19 cm) height x 4 inches (10 cm) depth when completed. My bag measures a bit larger as I added a couple extra stitches by mistake (oops!) and I also added an extra row to make it taller. You will have a bit of yarn leftover when following this pattern so you can make your bag a little bigger, if desired, or use the leftovers to create something else. There is not enough left over to create a second bag.

Can't crochet or knit or hoping to give sakiori (rag weaving) a go? These ombre yarn kits make a gorgeous woven table runner, shawl or home accent. The chiffon yarn is soft and fluid, even when woven. I created a beautiful runner using the remaining yarn from creating my tote. The runner is seen in photo 2 and is shown as a representation of what can be woven with this yarn and is not for sale. I used 3 colors of cotton yarn for the warp threads.

The kits come in the following ombre colorways. Please choose the color you would like using the pull-down menu. Please refer to the photos with the Crayola brand crayons for the most accurate representation of the color. The Crayola crayons were added to the photos for a color comparison.
