If you love our beloved Tussah Noil Fleck (#20-090), then you'll love this one! The colour is a softer tan. The yarn is slightly finer than our Fleck. It gives you the same texture, neps and textural flecks in your knitting or weaving. Consider running it along with another yarn for knitting. Although we don't recommend this yarn for warp (due to the flossy bits being sticky in the wind-on), it gives wonderful texture and character when used for weft. And for spinners, consider plying this with one of your handspun yarns for added texture and character.
