Tussah Silk Tops in Solid Colors
from Treetops Colour Harmonies
Tussah silk is commonly referred to as "wild" silk. The caterpillars feed on leaves of multiple types of trees in the forest that contain tannin. This silk has a natural light honey color. It is dyed beautifully with a rich palette of colors that will enhance your fiber project.
Silk Tops are fibers processed by cleaning, carding, and combing. Short fibers, neps, and noils are removed and all the remaining long fibers are aligned parallel to each other. Silk tops can also used by feltmakers to decorate their work to make a lustrous and colorful final product.
