Tussah Silk is a wild silk. Made from wild tussah silk worms who eat juniper leaves and oak. As the silk is produced in the wild and not in a controlled environment the silk tends to be courser and less lustrous than Mulberry silk. We have natural silk in many forms and also 6 dyed shades in tops. The dyes used are commercial acid dyes which conform with Oeko-Tex 100 quality system.
Fibre: Tussah Silk(all measurements are approximate)
Please Note: Colours may vary slightly from batch to batch due to the nature of natural fibre. We have taken every step to represent the colours correctly, but we do recommend ordering a sample for clarity as colours can change depending on your screen settings.
If ordering tops, roving or jumbo yarn, all quantities will be sent in a continual length (up to 10kg) unless otherwise stated or requested.
