The silk bug bites again

I felt like spinning something different tonight when I got home so I pulled out my fibre stash crate and went diving. I came across a huge 150g braid of pure mulberry silk that I purchased a few months ago and dyed gunmetal grey. I plan to spin it up fairly fine and ply it with an equally fine strand of pure midnight black merino that I purchased for this exact spinning project...I just hadnt gotten around to starting it yet ;o)

I've just started spinning this gorgeous fibre...and I'm already hooked. Again. You gotta love silk.
