Delicious, soft, smoky amethyst jewel colored Silk Merino roving or top with flashes of ruby to form a gorgeous tweed for spinning or felting, 4 oz.
Please let me know if you need more and I shall be happy to list it for you.
**Yarn shown is for example only & not for sale.

This roving contains subtle yet stunning jewel tones that were inspired by the mist over Nilgiri mountains in the winter. The silk gives this blend an exquisite glow.'Next to the skin soft'.

Pictured with the roving is a 2 ply dk/worsted weight yarn that I spun from it. The silk covers the yarn in a beautiful halo as it is spun.

This roving has been designed by me. Colors are not repeatable, so please purchase what you need while I have them in stock.

Content: Silk/Merino.
Hand wash gently in cold water. Do not agitate (or it will felt). Lay flat to dry.

Suggestions for quantities:
4 oz = a long scarf OR a par of socks OR a hat & fingerless mitts.
8 oz = hat, scarf & fingerless mitts.
1 lb = small, sleeveless vest.
2 lbs = a full sleeved sweater.

Plying & its effects on the final knitted garment:
-Single ply will be 'stripey' and may lead to 'pooling' in the final garment.
-Double plies (as pictured in yarn) are best for a well distributed 'tweed' effect and will greatly reduce or even eliminate 'pooling' especially when the fiber is pre-drafted before spinning.
-3 plies will almost always eliminate 'striping' and 'pooling' & are best for a “heathered tweed” or non pooling effect. 3 plying will also create a very sturdy yarn for long wearing garments.


Colors may vary slightly depending on your monitor.
