Call Your Girlfriend Merino/Silk

Regular price $40.05 Sale

Call your girlfriend.  This is a song by Robyn, but also one of my favorite podcasts.  It's hosted by "two long-distance besties" and they talk about pop culture, politics, life.  Now when one of my besties and I chat, if either of us have to leave a message we say, "Just callin' my girlfriend."  Gotta stay in touch with the ones we love!

*Please note that these are hand-dyed in small batches and colors may vary slightly from braid to braid.

A 50/50 blend of Merino and tussah silk.

Merino is a fine wool, great for next to the skin garments. Fine crimp makes for elasticity in a handspun yarn.  This is a great blend for wet felting as well. Merino typically has a staple length of 2-4 inches. Silk adds shine, strength, and softness to this blend. *Information from The Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook by Deborah Robson and Carol Ekarius.
