Bourette (noil or raw) silk is also known as ecofriendly silk as it is made from the cocoons once the worm has eaten its way out, this breaks the fibres resulting in its gorgeous nubby texture. It has a reputation of having a healing effect and to give calmness to the skin.
It is produced in Italy.
The yarn can be used for weaving (warp and weft) but also for knitting (both machine and hand knitting). It is also a good choice for crochet.
