Merino and Dyed Tussah Silk. Salt and Pepper Blended Roving. 8 oz. AR000122.

Merino Tussah Silk Blend in Salt and Pepper Colorway is 80% Ecru Merino and 20% Dyed Black Tussah Silk. There is a little more color separation in Salt and Pepper. This will give you a unique visual when over dyed. It reminds me of a twist ice cream cone.

This Fine Merino Fiber with blended Silk will be lovely for felting and hand spinning. The color separation makes for an interesting strip and streak feature that is a joy to work with.

The Merino portion is 21.5 microns with a 2.5-3 inch staple. This is blended with the Black Dyed Tussah Silk. The Silk adds even more softness to the fiber. There is so much shimmer and shine with the light bouncing off the silk.

I am selling it in 8 oz listings so you have enough for your projects. I do have even more of this luscious fiber. You can email me if you are looking for more, or buy multiple amounts.

All colors, weights, and sizes are depicted as best as my computer, monitor, camera and scales will allow. Stock photos that show color are used when available.

Wow. I'm gobsmacked by the beauty. This is so lovely that I've put it in a prominent place so I can just stare at it until I decide how to spin it and use it - eventually. I almost wish I'd ordered more, but for now, I'll content myself with its beauty and ponder the possibilities. This a great price for such lovely stuff. It was packaged well and came very quickly. Many thanks!

We do not do custom dye lots for rovings, tops, yarns or wearable art and finished pieces. These pieces are already finished in a custom color, or left in their natural state.
Most of the hand dyed and hand painted items have been washed by hand in the dye and set process.

Occasionally a piece will still have a bit of dye in it that might bleed.

We recommend that items are hand washed in COLD water with LIKE colors to ensure color staying where it is supposed to. Do not wash wool fibers or items made from wool fibers in hot water with soap and agitation or the item will FELT.

Dry flat or line dry where appropriate, Do not dry in an electric dryer or item will FELT.
