It's soft, smooshy and divine.

No not Conkers McBonkers this time- though he is all of those and more! It's my first lot of the merino/silk fibre I got a while back.
I haven't weighed it yet, and it is currently drying off, weighted down with the very technical device of a tin of chopped toms. It's approx 169m and 16wpi. I love the way the colours merged even more as I plied it (navajo) - now I just need to spin the rest of it......

Love it! what are your plans for it? I'm going to try a 2-ply laceweight with mine, for a shawl of some kind - dunno if I'll have enough to get the yardage though!
