Tussah/Muga/Eri

Tussah (aka Tassar) is a wild silk. Tussah moths have resisted domestication forever. You have to love that. Tussah is a warm tan colour, and has a bit more texture than Bombyx.
Muga is the Empress of Silk. From the Assam region of India, Muga has a beautiful golden colour that defies description.
Pedencal Tussah is the tussah from the pedencus (foot) of the cocoon. Rare and naturally brown.
Eri is sometimes called "Peace Silk" because it is processed without killing the silk pupa. It is white and cottony.
