Kundana- 100% Tussah (Wild Silk) Spun Yarn, 35/2, lace/thread weight (on cones),

Price: $73.34

Tussah silk is a naturally a lovely pale honey color, and we love this paired with Muga silk (Carmela or Carmelina).  A lovely, subtle, natural color combination. 

When planning your project, keep in mind that this silk will shrink a bit ... various weavers have experienced 11-25% shrinkage in warp length and 10-13% in width, depending upon structure and sett/PPI (more open means more potential shrinkage).

Our skeins sizes vary a bit in size, ranging between 190-210grams, with the average cone being 200 grams. 

We’ve listed the price for the AVERAGE weight cone.  We charge by the gram, so if your cone is a bit lighter, you’ll pay a bit less and if your skein is a bit heavier, you’ll pay a bit more.  If you need specific yardage for a project, please let us know in the comments section at check out so we can select the correct cone(s) for you. 

Once your cone is pulled and weighed, we will adjust your price and then process your credit card. We will call you if we have any questions.

Color: Natural 

Yarn Name Meaning: Fine Gold (Indian Kannada language)
