I will admit to being calmed by watching Bob Ross paint happy little clouds in a warm, blue sky.

*Please note that as these fibers are hand-dyed, colors may vary slightly from batch to batch. 

An 85/15 blend of Polwarth wool and silk.

Named for a county in southwestern Australia, the Polwarth breed was developed by crossing Merino rams with Merino/Lincoln ewes. This is a fine-wool with a micron count between 23-25 and a staple length of 4-6 inches. This isn't necessarily a "beginner" fiber for spinning; however, it is a great introduction to fine wools as it has a generous staple length. Silk adds a bit of shine and strength.  Given the fineness of the wool, this would wet felt well, too.
