Item details

This is 3.5 oz of tussah silk brick hand dyed in shades of pink and purple.

Silk bricks used to come in tightly folded rectangles about 8 cm wide, hence the name; nowadays they are much more loosely balled. Silk bricks are a thick sliver at approximately 20 grams per meter. Silk tops are very similar to silk bricks, but they are thinner and longer (about 6 grams per meter).

Silk bricks are made of overlapping lengths of silk filament (each filament is about 15 to 25 cm long), just like wool tops. You can use silk bricks and silk tops interchangeably. However, as the silk brick is thicker and wider than silk tops you may find it easier to draw the fibers when you are using them in silk fusion (i.e. silk paper making) or when you are blending them with another fiber in a drum carder.

I use only professional acid dyes on my products. I do my best to exhaust the dye bath, and rinse my products to remove any excess dye. However, some fibers are more delicate and may have only been lightly rinsed so as to prevent felting. Also, some dye colors are more prone to bleeding than others (ex. turquoise and red shades) Any excess dye should rinse out when you wash and set your yarn, however you should never wash fibers dyed with acid dyes in hot water as it can break the bonds and actually cause bleeding.

I have tried to capture the true colors as close as possible using natural light and a digital camera, but colors may vary slightly as not all monitors are the same. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Please be aware that my fibers are often stored with lavender, and most orders will be shipped with a small lavender sachet. If you have any allergies or sensitivities to lavender, please let me know and I will make sure to skip the sachet in your order!
