EXAMPLES FROM THE WEB FOR TUSSAH
Bengal has furnished the Tussah moth, which lives in India on the oak and a variety of other trees.
Over this is placed one braid of tussah silk and an outer braid of cotton.
The silk produced by the wild worms of China and India is called “tussah” (or “tussur”).
The China silk was dissolved by this reagent; Tussah silk and the lustra-celluloses entirely resisted its action.
