Play Date Merino/Silk

Play Date Merino/Silk

Regular price $40.05 Sale

My version of a play date would involve wine, good food, cheese, perhaps some fibery goodness - spinning or knitting, maybe a movie.  Yes!

*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.
