What is special about Tussar silk?

Tussar yarn filaments are not drawn in continuous long lengths of strands because the formation of the raw material within the cocoons is not as even as in that of the cultivated types. Therefore Tussar Silk staples are shorter in comparison to that of cultivated silk. However the material is reeled in carefully and texture wise is smooth and soft. Drawing Tussar silk from the silk worms, spinning yarn, weaving, dyeing are all routine as for mulberry silk and a major source of livelihood for the tribals of Jharkand Chattisgarh and Bhagalpur. The use of organic dyes mostly, have made them popular as eco-friendly silks. A special category of ‘Ahimsa’ or ‘non-violent’ silks as they are termed, involves allowing the silkworms to leave the cocoons on their own before drawing out the silk staples and is quite popular amongst certain sections of people.
