Tussah Tweed

Tussah Tweed from BC Yarn consists of 100% tussah silk. Tussah silk is a so-called wild silk, as it is obtained from the cocoons of wild oak silk moths - whose breeding has not succeeded to this day. Typical for silk are its stability and its ability to enhance the brilliance of colors. For this reason, it is suitable not only for hand knitting, but also for the knitting machine and for weaving and embroidery.

Attention: To dye silk in these deep colors a lot of dye is needed. So it may be that the knitted piece will bleed a bit when washed for the first time, or even stain a bit when worn. We recommend rinsing it in cold water before wearing it for the first time.


The yarn is spun and dyed in Italy. BC Yarn focuses on GOTS certified yarns. Currently, 15 BC Yarn qualities are GOTS certified and thus verifiably produced according to strict animal and environmental protection standards. By the way, the GOTS seal is in a way also a guarantor for fair trade, because in all stages of production also criteria like fair wages, labor protection and working conditions, social responsibility and anti-corruption guarantees are checked. Currently, BC Yarn is working on two yarn innovations that are produced with non-violent silk, i.e. silk for the extraction of which the silkworms do not have to die.
