Enjoy four unique silks - White Mulberry Silk, Bleached Tussah Silk, Red Eri Silk and Peduncle Silk.  This sampler contains four 1 ounce portions of each silk.  Perfect for blending projects, spinning as is and exploring the wide variety of silks available to handspinners.

Mulberry Silk is also known as Bombyx or cultivated silk and is produced by the Bombyx mori moth, which feeds exclusively on mulberry leaves.  It is a lustrous silk, with a sheen unmatched by other fibers.  

Tussah Silk is produced by a variety of moth species and is also commonly known as wild silk.  Tussah Silk is more matte, but blends easily with other fibers.

Eri Silk is a specialized type of Tussah Silk produced from the cocoons of the Samia ricini moth. It is a naturally colored silk, and described as a peaceful silk, since the silkworm is not killed in the processing of the cocoons. 

Peduncle silk is produced from the stem of cocoons from a specific Tussah silk caterpillar.  The stem is harvested after the moth emerges from the cocoon.  This particular form of Tussah silk has a shorter staple length than traditional Tussah Silk.  It is a naturally colored silk - a taupey sort of grey color. 

Care: Handwash cold, lay flat to dry.
