I spun this yarn from the Over the Sea to Skye merino/silk top I have in my shop. I spun it as a 3-ply yarn that is slightly thick and thin. I would definitely call it next to skin soft, but it isn't quite as lusciously soft as some of my yarn and fiber.
The last photo shows the top I used, which is also available in my shop.

MY GIFT TO YOU
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.
