This beautiful scarf was designed by Mavis MacMillan of Salt Spring Island using two of our silk yarns. Her striping sequence is based on three numbers from the Fibonacci number sequence multiplied by ten. Her stripes are either 10, 20 or 30 threads wide. One side of the scarf alternates Tussar / Bombyx, the other side Bombyx / Tussar.
Bombyx silk, also known as Mulberry silk, is the most cultivated silk in the world. Tussar silk is a wild silk worm that produces a lovely honey coloured fibre.
