Wild Silk


Tussah silk - or wild silk - is typically gathered in the jungle from cocoons of wild silkmoths, thus wild silk can be considered organic, as almost all wild silk is wildcrafted. Due to the way the worms have been left to roam, and the way the fabric is hand reeled and hand woven, it is top quality and is stronger than conventionally cultivated silk.
Wild silk tends to have a gradient of coffee hues from the natural food source for wild silkmoths - oak tree leaves. The nature of the wild hand-reeled yarn associated with wild silk gives this fabric real character from the gradient of hues, as well as how it is specially woven.
