Add a touch of elegance to your luxury hand made soap with the addition of Tussah silk fibre. Tussah silk fibre adds a silky, luxurious, rich texture to the lather.

To use silk in soap, dissolve a pinch or no more than one gram of silk for a kilogram of oils in your lye and water solution. It won't dissolve at once so you may have to leave it to sit for a while. Give a final stir then use as you normally would.

Tussah silk noil is a by-product during and after silk sliver production. Their silk is gathered after the moth emerges. This is the raw fibre, just as it's un-ravelled from silk cocoons; it's not yarn and it's not fabric. Its' naturally a tan colour, but won't discolour your soaps. It also has no odour in finished soap.
