Sorry, this item has sold.

This is the listing for med brown - see the last image for the 2 shades available (light & dark)

Peduncle is the stem or the start of the cocoon making process particular to the Tussar Silk worm.

The caterpillar spends hours going back and forth spinning the first strands of silk forming the stem before the serious business of making the cocoon.

The peduncle silk colour is more brown in colour than its creamy cousins but a delightlful contrast don't you think!

With a lovely soft matt finish this yarn can be used for weaving, crochet, knitting.

very matte, almost a bit wiry. Interesting yarn!

Natural brown, almost wool-like feeling to it. Very thin, might make a light shawl with it!

Very timely arrival. I rarely buy spun yarn but I was unfamiliar with peduncle and was looking for something to use as a core yarn. The yarn was beautifully spun and plied. Very pleased with it. Thank you.Marcia aka Topsy
