If you’re looking for bright, dazzling yarn, look no further than The Wool Peddler! Each recycled silk skein is handspun from silk weaving mill waste, so each one is unique and has a scrappy, yet soft texture.  The yarn is spun by women’s cooperatives in Nepal who sort, hand tease and finally hand-spin the yarn on a drop spindle. Then another group of women prepare the skeins for sale. For vibrant, solid colors, be sure to check out their new collection of Hand Picked Hues, and take advantage of their regular running special that enables you to get more skein for your buck!

The pattern is free, you can get it here: http://www.darngoodyarn.com/2009/06/80-ways-to-save-the-earth-tote-bag/

You can also get really great quality recycled silk yarn at www.DarnGoodYarn.com the last coupon code I saw was for 5% off the whole order and it was "DGYLove"

I hope that works!
