This is the most wonderful dyed mulberry silk I have ever seen. Superior Softness, Luxurious Luster and Drape. Tartan is a deep and vivid, even deeper than Hunter or Moss. Deep, dark yet incredibly elegant. This fiber is so stunning, I'm at a loss for words to describe it. Even as dark and neutral as it is, it can't help but add bling. Blend it in to your art batts, spin it into the most gorgeous yarn with luxurious hand. This will make an impression no matter what you choose to do with it! This amazing silk is carefully selected to ensure constant quality over time. The dyeing complies with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and is done in DHG's dyeing house which is GOTS 5.0 and GRS certified. This mulberry silk sliver is perfect for both needle and wet felting, spinning and hand weaving.
This is a tough one to photograph because it's so dark that my camera insists on flash. I eliminated flash on a couple so that it shows the color more clearly, without the flashback. Last pic is the manufacturer's which I think is very correct to shade.
Mulberry silk, also called Bombyx or Cultivated silk, is the world's finest silk, prized for its incredible luster, fineness and strength. This silk top is a top-quality combed preparation, ready to spin! This incredible silk can be easily over dyed with acid dyes including food coloring and drink mix, and also with fiber reactive dyes for an incomparable fiber with breathtaking vibrancy. Also excellent for spinning, felting or blending. It will add super softness, buttery silk feel, and wonderful luster to any craft it's used in.
