i got fewer yards than the targhee, which isn't surprising considering the fiber content. it's silky and shiny and soft, but heavy too. i do like the yarn, but i kind of don't see the point of both bamboo and silk in a blend. i have an idea in the back of my brain percolating for this one but it's not quite ready yet.

  1. Was working with the bamboo/silk difficult? It seems like it would be, but I've only spun with wool blends. The colorway is beautiful.

  2. Very nice! My milk fiber was a disaster. I was out of practice and too eager. Your MDS&W haul turned out much nicer!
