Description

2 ounces of what is considered the finest of silks, Bombyx. Also known as mulberry silk this fiber is what is known as combed sliver. It is naturally brilliant white from the diet of mulberry leaves the silk worms munch on during their lives. This roving is easy to spin from the fold and takes dye brilliantly. Available in 2 ounce lots.

The bowl is not for sale :)

A little about myself. I started handspinning because I thought I could make yarn cheaper and better than the yarn I could buy. Well it opened up a whole new world for me. Since the the days of buying my first fleece (a Corriedale) I have studied under the likes of Rita Buchanan, Stephenie Gausted, Deb Robson, Abby Fraquemont among others. I gradually began to focus the wool from different breeds of sheep.
I use this knowledge to curate the fibers I purchase. For quality, breed type and cleanliness. Some breeds it's hard to find all three qualities. But I know a good fleece when I get it in my hands and my goal is to provide you with a superior product at an affordable price point.

If you are not satisfied with the roving I offer a money back guarantee. It is as simple as that.
