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 420 metres per 100g skein. Suitable for 2-3mm needles.

This yarn is presented as a skein. If you would like it caked then this adds 24h to the dispatch time and costs £2. You can purchase this service here:
