Silk Top, Cultivated


100% silk.

Combed top, pearly off-white in colour. Staple length is about 7 to 8 inches. Also called Mulberry or Bombyx silk.

Silk top is easy to dye, using either acid dyes, fibre reactive dyes, or natural dyes.

For spinning, silk top may be spun all by itself or used for blending with a myriad of other fibres. Silk does not felt but is beautiful as a felting surface embellishment on top of a wool foundation.
