What materials did you use? Deep Fall dyed batts of Merino, Silk and Tencel from Knitting Knorth on Etsy plus Tussah Silk dyed by me in butterscotch with country classic dye. Hopefully the total project will be 1000 yards + and about 20 ozs at 11 wpi.

What are you most proud of? Plying in the dyed single and keeping the colors in the merino well blended. I do plan on doing another dyed project working on separating the colors and then N plying the singles to keep the colors together. Oh also dying my own fiber as well. :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just jump in, the water is fine! There is always another braid of colorway to work on if the first one isn't to your liking.

It would be hard to choose between spinning and just displaying the batt
