Peduncle Tussar Silk - 20/1 Yarn
Peduncle (or pedankle) Tussar Silk is produced from peduncles (the stick part of the Tussar cocoons that help the cocoon get attached to the tree) removed from the cocoons and boiled in water. Grown and processed by hand in India, the colors of the silk are from the tannin of the plants that the caterpillar eats. The result is a natural mocha color.
Our Peduncle Tussar Silk 20/1 Yarn is a very fine, strong, single-ply yarn. This product is suitable for weaving, knitting, crocheting and plying with another fibre.
The price varies per weight.
