Tussah Noil is creamy in appearance and can be spun by itself or blended. This fiber is easy to dye. Noils are the "leftovers" from creating silk top.

Tussah silk, a natural pale honey in color, is widely regarded as being a little easier to spin than bombyx silk. Cultivated from a different strain of moth than bombyx silk, tussah is incredibly fine, but just a little coarser than bombyx, and feels a bit less slippery. Tussah also dyes beautifully with acid dyes or fiber reactive dyes. It tends to produce a slightly fuzzier yarn than bombyx, still with the same incredible strength, shine and softness. Most teachers recommend new silk spinners start with tussah before bombyx.



Card it in with your spinning fibers for a great texture to your yarn. Blend it with your wool for needle, wet or nuno felting too.
