I couldn’t wait to start spinning up the “Flamenco” superwash merino and silk blend that I got from the Sanguine Gryphon. I’m using my lighter drop spindle on top whorl. I just love the richness of the colors. Wool/silk blends are rapidly becoming my favorite. They draft like butter! This will probably become the standard, three-ply light worsted weight. Unless it manages to talk me into making it a two-ply sport weight. The single on the spindle is crying to be lace!

    Very, very pretty. I happen to be specially partial to wool/silk blends myself. And also mohair/silk blends. Really, anything with silk in it.

    Silk is such gorgous stuff, isn’t it? I’d heard that it was hard to spin, but I’m not finding much to bother about. If anything it drafts better than wool.
