Hand-Painted A1 Quality Tussah Silk Roving
We’ve taken our most popular yarn color combinations and re-created them on tussah silk roving/silk sliver for your pleasure—be that spinning, fusion, or fiber arts.
Salt Spring Island colorways are hand-painted in Colorado. Our silks are colorfast and our colorways are consistent. Hand-painting silk roving is a labor-intensive process. Because silk loves dye, it grabs the color quickly so the dye doesn’t wick. It requires careful manipulation and effort to achieve even color coverage on silk roving.

I'm a textile and fibre arts researcher, and teacher. For the past 15years I have spun on both a wheel and drop spindle, weave on a modern loom as well as on an ancient warp weight loom and felt. My passion is the ancient arts!
I am also a tailor and make clothing for the re-enactors, living history participants, and mordern clothing.
