Leviathan Fibers Lace Weight Tussah Silk
This hand-dyed tussah silk yarn is simply divine! Unlike mulberry silk, the moths that create this silk feed on oak and other high tannin leaves, creating a base yarn that is a light golden brown. Dyeing over this natural color creates a depth of tone that we are in love with. This variety of silk yarn has an amazing sheen, and the jewel-like colorways almost glow. Perfect for your next lace project, or for a project that requires elegant drape, such as a shawl, scarf, or stole.
