Didymos Nino Tussah Natural

Better late than never! Didymos Nino Tussah Natural is available at SlingoMama web store. Limited quantities as usual.

Tussah silk is also called wild silk. It is darker than the cultivated silk, also known as mulberry silk. The reason of such dark color is the diet of the worms. They live in their natural conditions in the forests of China and eat leaves of Arjun, Asan and Oak trees.

The fibers of Tussah silk are shorter and stronger than the fibers of the cultivated silk. It feels less "silky" as well.

The new edition of Nino with Tussah silk is amazing due to the contrast of white cotton and coffee-creme silk.
