Navy blue and ivory merino were hand blended on my blending board with pure white bamboo and ecru tussah silk. It was then pulled off into roving and spun slightly thick and thin on my spindle.
I added a teensy bit of Starbright nylon for added strength and a little sparkle.
Alpaca is a wonderful fiber - 7 times warmer than wool! - and hypoallergenic to boot. Incredible softness is an added bonus! But alpaca lacks memory and elasticity and benefits from having other fibers added, like merino or silk. Bamboo adds sheen and breathability. These fibers are my all time favorite group of fibers to spin together.
Will post a wpi shortly!
