Peduncle Silk, Hand-spun Yarn

$ 14.10

Peduncle silk yarn comes from the silk "stem" that attaches the wild tussah silk cocoon to a branch. The caterpillar will first spin this "stem" before spinning its cocoon.

The skeins range in weight from 2.125 ounces to 4 ounces and are priced accordingly.

This yarn is handspun and requires a little extra care when handling.

It is a single ply and will give a unique texture to your woven or knitted project.

It could be plyed with a complimentary yarn to make a 2-ply.

It might feel stiff at first but quickly softens with handling.
