This golden fibre with a natural sheen is also known as soy silk and looks similar to tussah silk. Soybean tops are good at absorbing moisture and retaining warmth.
Soy silk is usually blended with other fibres to increase drape and strength, but it can also be spun on its own. Soybean fibre is a by-product of tofu production; it is high in protein and takes dyes well.
