Silk blend yarn -
This is the yarn the I made from the Louet Northern Lights Handpainted Roving 12.509 Fire Moss that I got with my Christmas Cash.
It was pencil roving - I'd never spun pencil roving and thought it sounded like fun - It is certainly easy to spin nice even singles with out any effort.
Part of it I plied with the silk that I spun from the silk caps at our January spinner guild meeting.
The silk was very close in colors to the roving by very much of a coincidence.
If you click on the picture, it will biggify and you can see the subtle difference in the yarn that is 100% wool and the yarn that is 50-50 wool and silk.
The yarn has a lot of the same colors from this photo of the trunk of our river birch - don't you think?
It isn't as soft as I would like - so maybe not scarf material - but most likely a very pretty hat.
