Ashland Bay Tussah silk Bleached
Tussah Silk Combed Top is a more natural style fiber not the best for spinning by itself but great for blending with merino or other fibers. Very soft and holds shape so it won't fall apart when you handle it. What is Tussah Silk? There are two types of silk- cultivated and wild. Mulberry Silk is cultivated and the worms are fed strictly mulberry leaves. Cultivated silk is typically finer, stronger, smoother and more uniform. Tussah silk is wild and the worms eat whatever they can find which affects the color and texture. Tussah silk is still very beautiful but has less luster and is not as strong as the cultivated and not as smooth.
