What’s New – Hand Maiden Mulberry Tussah!
We recently received a huge shipment of Hand Maiden’s Swiss Mountain Silk Mulberry Tussah, a truly unique yarn. It’s made up of two plies – one in Mulberry Silk and the other in Tussah Silk. Because each type of silk takes the dye differently, there’s a beautiful dance in how the light shifts across the colors.
You’ll find all of silk’s inherent shine and drape in this yarn, and at a DK/worsted weight, it’s also got a delightful heft, perfect for the most luxurious shawls and scarves, and even tops and sweaters. Each 100g skein has 200m, and a suggested needle size of US 6 (4mm) for a gauge of 20sts per 4″ (10cm). You can find the Swiss Mountain Silk Mulberry Tussah here.
Below, you’ll see the Mulberry Tussah used in the Vitis Scarf by Twitchy Hands. It uses a single skein; the original photo is in the colorway Violetta.
As always, all domestic orders ship for free, as do international orders of $100US or more.
