This truly exquisite blended cotton and silk yarn provides a textured and coarser yarn with added colour and warmth. The cotton is handspun with Tussar silk for a variegated turquoise cotton and natural silk finish. Tussar silk comes from the cocoons of the silkworm belonging to the moth genus Antheraea and is known as “Wild Silk” as the silkworms live in the wild forests belonging to the Terminalia species. Tussar silk is valued for its rich texture and deep gold coloration and is perfect for fibre arts, weaving, knitting and crochet projects bringing individuality and elegance to any fibre project. This yarn brings out the truly natural finishes of cotton and organic/wild silk!
All of our yarns are sourced from eco-friendly, natural and sustainable sources and through your purchase, you are significantly supporting the livelihoods of the local communities who produce them.
This yarn is supplied in a skein of 100g (approximately 1000 yards).
