Tsumugi: is a silk fabric woven from the floss remaining in the silkworm cocoon after the full threads have been removed. By spinning these broken strands together silkworm farmers created a fabric for their own use. Today tsumugi is highly prized and one of the most expensive kimono fabrics despite its humble origins. Initially tsumugi fabric is very stiff, due to the starch applied during spinning, but the more times it is worn and washed,the softer it becomes.
