My daughter is going to be a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding, and she dyed this colorway in her friend's wedding colors on pure mulberry silk top. This is a limited edition item in my shop. It's incredibly soft and lustrous.
The top itself is about 1" in diameter, so halfway between the thickness of pencil roving and regular wool top. I would recommend this for someone who has been spinning for awhile. Silk is tremendously strong and has a very long staple length, but it's also a bit slippery to spin.
This colorway includes several shades of blue and green along with a little white. In places it looks just like a tartan plaid.FIBER FACTS

Each top also comes with a label to let you know what it's made of for future reference and comes carefully wrapped in tissue paper. This makes a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite spinner or felter.
MY GIFT TO YOU
Also, as a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
