It was beautiful roving, a slate blue blend of Merino and silk. I wanted it to have a little more sparkle, so I carded it up with a handful of Firestar, spun it on my old Louet S10 and Navajo-plied it up. It's soft, it's got luster -and- now it's got sparkle!

Soft, sqooshy and sparkly too...

The lowdown:

70 Merino/30 Silk + Firestar
3.25 ounces/175 yards
Handspun, 3ply, light to heavy worsted

Please hand wash this gently and lay flat to dry, unless felting is your objective.

This yarn comes from a smoke-free, pet friendly house (the pets aren't even remotely interested in my yarns. At all.) Just so you know...the yarn was thoroughly washed in a sweet wool wash bath.
