We carry a number of different silk fibers.

Mulberry Silk (Bombyx Mori):

Mulberry silk is pure white and is from silkworms fed on Mulberry leaves. Silk is pure luxury. Silk has many qualities. As well as its natural sheen, it is strong, resistant to pilling, and the long fibres make it easy to spin. It looks stunning when dyed and blends beautifully with other fibres.

Tussah Silk:
Tussah is naturally soft beige and is from silkworms fed on Oak leaves. It has a very long staple. It is strong, lustrous and more resilient than cultivated "white" silks. Silk is pure luxury. Silk has many qualities. As well as its natural sheen, it is strong, resistant to pilling, and the long fibres make it easy to spin. It dyes beautifully and blends well with other fibres.
