Yak and Silk

And silk.

Can we just say "luxurious"? I knew we could!

This is wonderful yarn (if I have to say so myself). The silk single is spun from dyed mulberry silk which has amazing almost-metallic shine. The yak is matte and fuzzy, spun woolen to make it even softer. The two together are sublime.

They also match the color-scheme of a slowly-growing stash that I am seriously considering for making a hand-woven jacket.

Yes. A hand-woven jacket.

I'm so excited about this!

But there's still a lot more spinning to do, so I'll get back to you on this again, later!

P.S. This is 3.5 oz towards December Stashdown. Almost done!
