Crown Mountain Farms Silk Fibers - Tussah

Saturnid Moth

The Saturnids or Giant Silkworm moths are the best known of the wild silk moths. They are distinctive large moths with large "eye" markings on their wings. Wild silk is a coarser fiber than cultivated silk. Traditionally silk carpets are made of this. Because it grows free, without cultivation, and the silkworms diet is any leaf available, the natural color varies in shade from off-white to almost yellow.

We offer Tussah Silk that is dyed by Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks. The art of hand-dying silk requires a perfect balance of moisture in the fiber. Nancy Finn, artist and owner of Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks has mastered this technique and produces consistently beautiful fiber in 58 colorways. As Nancy says about silk : "It's the only way to see color". Enjoy the feast of her fabulous colorways.
