BC Garn's Tussah Tweed is a beautiful and rustic yarn made of 100% Tussah silk. Tussah silk is the so-called wild silk. In the production of wild silk, the silkworms are not harmed in the production. Silk is collected from the groves of free-living silkworms only when the silkworm has left its cocoon. Its fine tweed-like surface is also characteristic of tussah silk, in addition, the shades of the silk are deliciously rich and brilliant.

Tussah Tweed is suitable for lovely flowing summer knits, scarves, but also for machine knitting. It also lasts over time and thus improves and softens with use and washing. The manufacturer's estimate for the women's size M sweater is 300 grams.

Always use a detergent suitable for silk and/or a little vinegar in the rinse water.

The yarn is spun and dyed in Italy. BC Garn's focus is on GOTS certified yarns, of which they already have several. They have been proven to be produced in accordance with strict animal welfare and environmental protection standards. By the way, the GOTS seal is also in a certain sense a guarantee of fair trade, as criteria such as fair wages, occupational safety and working conditions, social responsibility and anti-corruption guarantees are checked at all stages of production.
