Throwster silk is upcycled bombyx silk, similar to sari silk. It's more rustic and textural than regularly processed bombyx silk. Expect it to have more surface fibre and neps. Also expect it to add dimension and visual interest to your work. This medium-weight single is a great knitting yarn - tons of lustre and surface texture. Also makes a great weft, either as an accent, or as an entire piece. The colour is very white.
