Tsumugi- Silk fabricspun by hand from the short silk threads of wild silkworm cocoons or the floss remaining in the cocoon after the full threads have been removed. The fabric is often slubbed or a little rough due to the uneven thread widths and has a characteristic stiffness which softens with age. There are many distinct regional variations as it was originally spun, woven, and sewn for domestic use by peasant farmers. Because of its artisanal nature it is now one of the most highly prized and expensive kimono fabrics.
