Merino/Soy Silk 50/50 (dye free)

I'm introducing another brand new fiber to Wind Rose Fiber Studio. This is 50/50 Merino/Soy Silk available in 2oz or 1oz amounts. (You can always contact me if you need more.) I'm excited about this roving, not just because it's soft, but because I think it's going to dye up really pretty. Soy Silk is a plant fiber and Merino is a protein, but they both dye well using acid reactive dyes. What I think will be interesting is that soy silk always takes color just a little differently than wool. I think this will lend a lot of interest to the finished roving. I can't wait to give it a try and you know I'll be back to show you the results!
