Peduncle silk is processed from the stem of the cocoon spun by the tussah caterpillar. The silk from the tussah cocoon, like in our beautiful tussah yarn, are a light gold colour, but the stem is dark charcoal grey. This silk has excellent lustre and softness. It manageable to spin, though does have a shorter staple than a typical mulberry or tussah silk, and produces beautiful, soft yarns.
