Tussah SilkEver heard of Tussah Silk? It's a special type of silk, a bit different from the regular Mulberry Silk you might know.

It weaves a spell of strength into your yarn, making it tough and sturdy. No worries about wear and tear here! Plus, its natural, slightly matte sheen adds an earthy elegance to your creations.
Think about it – Tussah Silk is your ticket to creating robust, luxurious yarn. Its fibres are coarser and more textured compared to Mulberry Silk, giving your spun yarn a rustic touch.
