This is a beautiful partially degummed tussah silk from Japan. Despite the fact that it is very fine, it is a very strong yarn that can be successfully used as a warp. The base yarn is 2/260 and comes in black and white. This item is sold only in 1/4lb cones ($75). We also asked the mill to ply four strands to create a thicker yarn for those who are not ready to work with such a fine yarn. This version is a 4-ply of the 2/260 silk (4/2/260), and is sold in 1oz cones ($17/oz).
2/260: 1/4lb, $75
4/2/260: 1Oz, 950 yards
