What the heck is Pedencal Tussah Silk? Well, the pedencal stem is the little leg that attaches the tussah cocoon to a tree branch. This yarn is made by spinnning this part of the tussah cocoon. The rich brown colour is the natural, undyed colour. The texture of this yarn is soft and a bit cotton-y. It's a superb way to introduce a soft, natural brown into your work. The machine knit sample in the photographs is half-knit with a single strand, and the other half is knit with 2 strands together.
This yarn is not available on cones, or in smaller skeins.
