$ 19.00

8 yards per/spool

TUSSAR & MULBERRY SILK twine is a thick-weight handspun silk twine. This multi-colored twine has dark golden browns wound with black. The thickness varies and has the look of "dreadlocks". This is a surprisingly strong twine. Adds texture and character to wrappings or tags.

Each of our silk twines is created from silk cocoons sustainably gathered from a protected forest in eastern India. The cocoons are gathered after the moths have left the cocoon, so this silk twine would also be referred to as "peace" silk or Ahimsa silk {meaning: "nonviolence"}. Each part of the cocoon is used, creating no waste. The varying textures and widths reflect the varying parts of the cocoon. 

Each spool holds 8 yards
