100% fancy spun tussah silk

318 yards (291 meters) per 100 grams

6-7 stitches per inch on US 3-5 /3.25-3.75 mm

$30 per 100g skein - dyed in a batch of 4 skeins

As the skeins emerged from the kettle, I fell in love, and as they dried, it deepened. Both the structure of the tussah silk and the color remind me of being outside in late summer, seeing the drying grasses turning from bright summer green to a whispering sage; the leaves on the trees and flowers following suit.

This yarn is lovely, but it's been a bit of a hard sell. Therefore, this is the very last batch we'll be dyeing as it joins our discontinued bases. Unless, of course, it's your favorite. Then it'll be available to you by special request.
