Snow On Heat

We're having a heat wave in my neck of the woods, breaking records for high temps here on the North Coast. I'm melting...

Carded noil and bombyx silk yarn

But here's some snowy silk yarn I just finished -- 430 yards of carded silk noil plied with a very fine strand of bombyx. The texture of this yarn is slightly nubby, which is wonderful.

I'm gathering quite a collection of handspun white yarns that I'm planning on using in upcoming projects. There's something that's really been attracting me to basic white, also basic black. As much as I am a color devotee, in my mind's eye I keep seeing white or black fabrics that I have done any number of exciting things to. Stay tuned.
