Here's one pattern for a bag with recycled silk yarn.

150 yds I believe...

Would 150 yards be enough for an 8"x8" (approx) purse with strap?


Just don't know how wide to make this...

check out knitters review forums. THey have a whole section on knitting with 100 yards or knitting with 500 yards, etc. Here's an example

If you make a bag, I would highly recommend lining it as soy silk will stretch over time.
