Tussah is naturally soft beige and is from silk worms fed on Oak leaves. It has a very long staple. It is strong, lustrous and more resilient than cultivated "white" silks. Silk is pure luxury. Silk has many qualities. As well as its natural sheen, it is strong, resistant to pilling, and the long fibres make it easy to spin. It dyes beautifully and blends well with other fibres.
