100% Tussah Silk (Peace Silk)
You didn't think I'd supply all of these silk blends without offering you the real deal. Did you?
As of today, Wind Rose Fiber Studio is now carrying 100% Tussah Silk. Tussah Silk is gathered from wild silk worms after the moth emerges and is often referred to as "Peace Silk". It's stronger than cultivated silk and has more than a 3" staple length. It's loved by both spinners and needle felters for its softness and luster.
