Wool Information

Weight

Tussah silk is produced by tussah silkworms and is usually a beautiful natural golden colour but can vary from pale cream to a dark rich brown. These silkworms eat oak leaves or other leaves rich in tannin and it is the tannin that gives the colour to this silk. 

It has a very long staple. It is strong, lustrous and more resilient than cultivated "white" silks.

These come in either 25gm or 50gm bags.
