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.
