Polwarth Tussah Silk 60/40
This is an amazing fibre to spin and felt. The amount of silk is just perfect- not too much and not too little.
The Polwarth fibre blends with Tussah silk to add additional shine and luxury to any hand spun yarns. If you are a dyer, this is a must try blend, it gives amazing results do to the amount of silk.
Micron count between 22-25. Definitely next to skin softness. Polwarth is noted for its elasticity, durability it is still considered a delicate fibre with bounce and drape
I hand dye my yarn and fibre in small batches to ensure unique effects and colour ways. Hand-dyed fibre and yarn, even when dyed in the same pot or pan, will never match exactly and and therefore it is difficult to repeat colour ways even with the same recipes. If you see something you like, be sure to get enough for your project.
