Silk is pure luxury! Along with its natural sheen, it is strong, resistant to pilling, and has long fibres that make it easy to spin. It takes dye to produce stunning depth of colour, and blends beautifully with other fibres.
Mulberry silk is pure white and is produced from silk worms which have fed on Mulberry leaves.
Tussah is naturally soft beige and is from silk worms fed on Oak leaves. It has a very long staple.
Silk fibres do not have scales and therefore will not felt on their own. Mix with wool fibres for best felting results.
