Inspired by my dearly beloved TV series "Firefly," Browncoat is a semi-solid swirl of warm oranges and browns, with a few golden highlights. It's hand-dyed on 2 oz of 100% tussah silk, presented as a combed top. No undyed spots, just rich, saturated color.

Tussah silk is made by wild silkworms, who eat whatever food they can find, as compared to mulberry (bombyx) silk, which is produced by cultivated silkworms who are only fed mulberry leaves. Due to the silkworms' more irregular food sources, tussah is more textured than bombyx silk, and is considered by many to be easier to spin for spinners new to silk.

When dyeing fiber, my top priority is creating an enjoyable spinning experience, where the fiber drafts easily and happily into yarn. I strive to make every braid a joy to spin.

What customers say about Huckleberry Knits fiber:

"Your fiber spins like butter! It just melts into yarn."

"[Your fiber] was an absolute delight to spin!!! My first Falkland I spun was a horrible experience........sticky and compacted. Other ravelers encouraged me to try Falkland again from a different dyer and it was so much nicer. But yours was wonderful! Thanks for the effort you put into quality fiber bases and great prep. I so appreciated it!"
