About TussaLin{s} (now replaced by TLprime{s})

65/35 Tussah Silk/Linen, 378 yards (346 meters) / 4 oz

TussaLin{sport} is the 4ply sport weight version of TussaLin (TL). The yarn has a nice plump finish and holds its round shape. Perfect for summer time garments and accessories - and it’s easy on the hands, unlike many linen yarns.

Tussah is ‘wild’ silk with a rustic feel, a perfect complement to the linen in this yarn for summer or warm weather knitting. The combination of tussah silk and linen produces a luxurious yarn with a smooth feel and excellent stitch definition.

Hand washing is recommended. The dyes I use are low-impact Procion MX fiber reactive dyes, the same that I use for all dyedianadye garments and accessories. I use a cold water process, randomly distributing color, often in multiple baths to produce a glazed and layered effect. The result is no regular striping or predictable pooling. In addition, both the silk and linen fibers take up the color. You will not have white linen strings or haze in this yarn.

All skeins within a lot or between lots will vary from one other. If your garment requires more than a single skein, consider alternating between skeins.

Base yarn is spun in Canada and dyed by me in my Atlanta studio.
