Luscious pale silver roving, super soft white Rambouillet wool 38% gray baby alpaca 51% mulberry silk with Micro noil 11%. This listing 4 oz.
We have experimented with different ways to create color and texture variation. This roving has slight texture. This is not the usual silk noil which is larger, more cream than white, and creates more distinct texture. If you look in the picture, you will see tiny white bumps, and the spun and knit sample pictures demonstrate the tiny bits of pearly white this creates. It's not enough that it will change your spinning technique. That coupled with the blend of white and gray makes a pretty heathery effect.
This is definitely next to skin soft. It's a sweet spin, buttery with a nice balance of crimp, memory, and drape. As usual, it's all US small farm fiber (excluding silk, haven't found a silk rancher yet). We pack in boxes to ship roving, so it will arrive pristine and ready to spin.
What I love about this shop is the inventive fiber blends you all come up with! I saw this blend and I knew I had to give it a chance. When it arrived--OH, so soft! I am going to have to make this into something really special.
