CC Tussah Silk

This 100% tussah silk fiber is available in 29 gloriously dyed colors.

Perfect for spinning, felting and making silk paper (paper fusion, as some refer to it).

In all cases, I find a little goes a long way but adds great color, sheen and softness to your project. An ounce makes a nice sheet of paper; an ounce of tussah spun as a singles and then plied it to a singles of angora or wool makes for a lovely and soft yarn for a hat or cowl; and just 1 hank (2 ounces) of light tussah wisps placed on the surface of merino is enough to felt a jacket and create a lovely surface.

If you're looking for white or natural tussah, check out this page.
