This is hand-dyed on 100% tussah silk. It is amazing soft fiber. It has rich color and magical shine !
This preparation is less slippery, less expensive and a little easier to spin than cultivated ( also known as mulberry ) silk but still a premium quality tussah - so perfect for those ready to venture into silk spinning.
This is also great for many other uses and crafts like felting, nuno felting, silk fusion, weaving, knitting and crochet, paper and sewing crafts and lots more.
I take great care to make sure that dye is sufficiently exhausted and heat set the fibers so there is minimal to no run-off. However, due to differences in water across the globe, what runs clear for me may bleed a little for you. Please take care to hand wash your finished item in cool water and lay flat to dry. I also make every attempt possible to use a photograph that is as true as possible to the real color. Monitor settings may vary.
