Why is it that silk has that ring to it? When someone says silk you automatically think "Oh that must be really nice!". :)
Last year at the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival, I purchased some silk hankies intending to dye them and spin with them. Well, that was nearly a year ago and I finally got to dyeing them today. I have no idea why I waited so long!!! It's true, the hankies take color just like superwash merino.....sucked it right up. The colors were vibrant, just the effect I was looking for.
The last set of scarves are off the loom as well and I have been twisting fringe here and there. The fiber inventory was low so I used today to dye some fiber........truth be told, these hankies were a real treat. I think I'll be working with them a lot more:)
