This is a blue, lovely, well balanced, luxurious feeling skein of alpaca and silk handspun. Go here to see what the roving looked like before spinning - http://www.etsy.com/listing/68513924/hand-dyed-alpaca-and-silk-roving-2

As I was creating this yarn, I was thinking it needed to be something warm and silky, a lacey scarf maybe? The last picture shows a little sample that I knit on US 13 needles. I added some yarn overs because it feels like a heavy lace yarn.
