The Squeaking Silk Moth (Rhodinia fugax) caterpillar will chirrup when threatened. They rapidly contract their bodies, forcing air through their spiracula, emitting a high pitched squeaking sound. The moth pictured is a female, with males generally being darker with orange and brown colouration. Their silk has different properties than that of the domesticated silk moth and is green in colour.
It is a soft and smooth superwash treated sock (4ply/fingering) weight yarn spun from 75% cosy merino wool with 25% nylon for enhanced durability. Around 84 metres per 20g mini skein. Suitable for 2-3mm needles.
I do not cake miniskeins.
