Mulberry silk top  (also known as Bombyx silk top) is a rope-like form of lustrous silk fibres produced from  domesticated silk worms fed on mulberry leaves.   Each individual fibre is around 15 cm long and there are 3 to 4 metres of silk top in 15 grams.  Aniseed is a very dark midnight blue.

More Info

Silk top can be very finely laid out on top of a bed of wool fibres and wet felted to create a lustrous silky wool felt.  The silk top has no scales but the felting wool acts as a glue to lock the silk fibre into the wool fibre when wet felted.

The silk top can also be arranged in layers without any wool and a textile bonding medium applied to create beautiful hand made silk paper.  A little goes a long way.
