Azzarath, I like Custard, it sounds more appealing Smiley

Yes, I dye the silk. I use acid dyes, it takes the colors so nice.

Your yarn is beautiful. Love the cold/warm colors. They do looks like metal. Very pretty

Thanks Smiley

I spin a lot of Bamboo, so the silk is very similar. Less slipery than the Bamboo, staple lenght - very comfortable. But more chalenging than merino / Alpaca / regular wool, a lot of fun to spin.
