A 50/50 blend of merino and tussah silk.
Merino is a fine wool great for next to the skin garments. It has a lot of crimp, which means elasticity in a handspun yarn. Merino typically has a staple length of 2-5 inches, which makes it more difficult to spin for beginners, but great for spinning laceweight yarn. Silk adds shine, strength, and softness to this blend. *Information from The Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook by Deborah Robson and Carol Ekarius.
