The natural silk
Tussah-silk is made from the cocoon of the Oak Silk Moth. The wild silk worms live naturally and their silk is gathered after the moth emerges. So, this „wild“ silk is somewhat irregular which gives it quite a special charm.
Wash and Care
Tussah-silk has to be washed and ironed with the same special and gentle care as normal silk. The wraps should be hand-washed only, preferably with a special silk detergent. Pull into shape after washing and air dry. Be careful to iron the slightly damp cloth on low temperatures only. Sprinkling before ironing may cause water stains.
