Silky Rambo

50/50 Rambouillet/Silk
i finally spun up the 50/50 rambouillet/silk batt that i bought from crystal creek fibers.

2ply yarn spun longdraw
dyed with acid dyes
very thick n' thin, ranges from lace to sport weight

so far i've had a hard time spinning silk. even with longdraw, the silk wanted to separate from the much shorter rambouillet fibers, so the yarn is really uneven. it's also not as shiny as it would've been had i spun it short-forward draw.

i've been really into browns lately, in case you couldn't tell. i forgot to take a picture of the yarn pre-dyeing. 500 yards of uneven yarn is kind of an awkward amount. i'm not sure what to do with it, but i'm sure i'll figure it out eventually. the yarn is wonderfully soft.
