This is one of the most unusual spinning fibres we've ever encountered. It looks like pewter in fibre form. It has a stunning luster, and the brownish-grey colour is breathtaking. Peduncle tassar is fibre from the peduncle part (foot) of the cocoon, which is the little stalk the silkworm makes to attach itself to a tree branch (see Tassar 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 200g or more, we will package it in one bag (rather than multiple 50g bags). If you'd prefer 50g bags, please let us know in the message part of the checkout.
