Rapunzel I is a single-ply tussah silk. Tussah silk is made from the cocoons of the Antherea mylitta moth, which produces a honey-colored silk with high luster. Rapunzel I is a somewhat loosely-spun yarn, so abrasion may be a problem if it is used as a warp yarn, but it would be lovely in the weft.
This yarn comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process.
