This is the most unusual spinning fibre we've ever encountered. It looks like pewter in fibre form. It has a stunning luster, and the brownish-grey colour is breathtaking. Pedencal tussah is fibre from the pedencus (foot) of the cocoon, which is the little appendage the silkworm makes to attach itself to a tree branch (go to Tussah Cocoons to see this appendage). Like all tussah spinning fibre, this one has "tooth" that makes it easy to spin. It's a rare and spectacular spinning fibre.
Please note: If you order 300g or more, we will package it in one bag (rather than multiple 100g bags). If you'd prefer 100g bags, please let us know in the message part of the checkout.
