This yarn is not available on cones.

Tussah cocoons have the distinction of having several colours of silk in one cocoon. "Kete" refers to this lovely varigation. This yarn takes stunning advantage of this by combining the "regular" golden tan colour we usually associate with tussah with the brown colour found in the pedencal stem of the cocoon (see 41-025). The weight and colour-charm of this yarn makes it a delight for weaving and knitting.
