7.28 Keeping going...

Next up on the spinning scene is this mulberry sliver. It's been marinating in stash for a couple of years and I decided it was time.
It's sort of like spinning silk, but only sort of. Spinning from the fold seems to be the way to go. It has no give at all, so I'm seriously thinking of plying it with wool. Two ply or three? Dunno yet. Still waffling on that point.

Shiny! Does it feel a bit like soy silk? Sorry to miss your call yesterday -- was on the train, then the bus, then running errands, more bus, more train, walking a few miles lugging packages, then home and snoring on the couch. Bleh. More of the same today, but tomorrow might work for a call if you have a moment?

Love it! And if it has no give, but you want it to have some, plying it with wool is a really good option. Is it bamboo? Or is it mystery fiber?

So pretty!
