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.
