i played with a new fiber mix
18 micron merino, and tussah silk, which i dyed with the left overs of gunmetal dye some time ago
i am going to bled the 2 together, and mix some black bamboo into it
it will be 6 batts, with something like 45 to 50 gram each
i might need to deside if i want to make a 4 or 3 ply
then i knitted a stunning 4 squares, till i was so restless again, and went back to carding :D
here you see 2 batts after the 1st pass through the drumcarder, and 1 batt after 2 passes
i might need to run it though 1 or 2 more times, to get it even more blendet
i did a little sample with my handcards, and this spins like high polished dark steel :)
and yes, its sparkle you can see here !
AND i did a tiny bit of spinning again - i need to finish this black
i desided i dont like to spin black, i can hardly see it, as the light comes from the back.
and i chatted many many hours … :D
