Pedencal Tussah Silk is silk spun from the pedencus (foot) of the tussah cocoon. The Tussah is a wild silkworm, which means it can't be raised in captivity. Because it lives in trees, the pedencus is the little attachment the silkworm builds to attach its cocoon to a handy branch. 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.

Please note that this yarn is wound into skeins in its country of origin. The skein sizes vary, but are generally approximately 90g each.
