Tussah Silk Tops
Tussah Silk Tops are a natural golden colour and are perfect for dyeing. They have a beautiful natural shine, spin easily, are very soft and are great for next to skin projects. Tussah silk, or wild silk, is produced by tussah silk moth larvae, which feed on oak trees, and the golden colour comes from natural tannin in the oak leaves.
Use them for silk paper making, layering into felt, or hand spinning and weave or knit your handspun yarn.
