Twine / Organic Tussar & Eri Silk

$ 17.00

10 yards per/spool

TUSSAR & ERI blend twine is a thin multi-textured handspun silk twine. This multi-colored & textured silk twine is a contrast between a soft off-white eri silk & rough, raw brown tussar silk.

Comes wound on a hand-carved, raw wood antique-style spool. 

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.
