Twine / Organic Nassi Silk

$ 17.00

10 yards per/spool

NASSI SILK twine is an ultra-thin handspun silk twine with a knotty texture and variations in thickness. This multi-colored twine is unique and fragile. Beautiful as an accent or wrapping to create texture. Not strong enough on its own to firmly hold items together.

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.
