This is bombyx silk with tiny little noils or "pearls"........I love this fiber!

Very few people that I send this to or offer it to in my spinning classes guess that it is silk.......most think it is a blend of something with cotton or merino......NOPE! It is pure silk but with tiny little noils....when you spin this fiber it WILL make a lumpy bumpy yarn. It makes some really beautiful scarves.........and if spun fine enough a really pretty lacy shawl.........the tiny little lumps do show but not enough to distract from the finished piece.

I give this to all of my beginner spinners........they are amazed and tickled pink when I tell them they ARE spinning silk. So if you are a beginning spinner and have been tempted to try silk .......here it is. I guarantee you won't have a problem spinning this fiber.

I have included a sample of this fiber in some spindle packets and if you are wondering what it was........now you know.

Treat is as you would any other silk as far as washing the finished garemnt.....if it sticks to your hands while spinning either apply a really good lotion to your hands or a rub a little lemon juice on your hands to get rid of the roughness. This fiber takes dye BEAUTIFULLY..........

You get 4 ounces in this listing but I have more if you need it...........
