Tussah silk comes in many subtle colours, variations of soft creamy ivory, to beigey-tan, to brown. What we love about this particular yarn is that it's a colour we haven't seen before. It's darker than the lightest creamy-tussahs, but not as dark as the brown ones. If you're working with variations of natural colours, this one is a must to add dimension to your colour/value offering. And it's an unbeatable price! Being a single, it isn't ideal for warps, as it tends to twist a bit. But if you run it alternately with something less twisty (i.e. any 2-ply silk) you'll be off to the races.
