This mulberry silk noil yarn also called “bourette” is derived from the Bombyx silk worm that feeds on mulberry leaves. The noil is made from the shorter fibres remaining after making the higher finish spun silk.
This silk noil yarn comes as a lovely natural colour and finish with a lovely dense softness ideal for any silk oriented weaving projects. This yarn is also excellent for dyeing with natural plant or acid dyes.
