Required for Alterations Yes

Developed by the Merelew, seasilk is made from the long silky filaments or byssus secreted by a gland in the foot of giant clam shells. The shell, which is sometimes almost a meter long, adheres itself to rocks with a tuft of very strong thin fibers, pointed end down, in the intertidal zone. These byssi or filaments (which can be up to 6 cm long) are spun and, when treated with red algae extract, turn a golden color.

Seasilk may be dyed, but always retains a golden cast.

Undyed seasilk description: The glossy silk holds a deep golden sheen over the fabric.

Dyed seasilk common description: The glossy <predominant color> silk holds a faint golden sheen over the fabric.
