Tussah Silk Roving ~ Booth Bay
$ 19.00 USD
The most beautifully dyed silk roving I've ever seen...you'll want to drop everything and bust out the spinning wheel the second this arrives, I promise! This colorway is the memory of your favorite sunset: bright magentas, warm yellows, and deep blues.
This gorgeous tussah silk roving is hand-painted by Treenway Silks in Colorado. Dyeing silk evenly takes true skill and is a labor of love, and the folks at Treenway are real masters of their craft.
25 grams of this roving goes surprisingly far. Spin and ply it to itself, or ply a dark, naturally colored merino for pop of color. Make a stunning scarf with black alpaca warp scattered with a just a few strands of finely spun handspun Tussah silk. Or dream up your own plans for it!
