Hand Maiden Swiss Mtn. Mulberry Tussah – Clearance
Two great silks with a spunky little twist! This yarn pairs an enchanting play of light and softness: mulberry silk (the white silk made by caterpillars feeding only on mulberry leaves) is plied with tussah silk (the wild-crafted golden-hued silk created by caterpillars feeding only on oak leaves). Because each is a different color and also a different length (mulberry is a much longer fiber), the silks absorb dye and reflect light quite differently. The result practically sparkles – another great “un-wool”!
