Hi

I'm new to spinning and i want to buy some silk to spin but I, foolishly! presumed there would be only one or two variations available!  White Tussah and Bombyx Silk Roving and noils are just a few of the varieties i've seen so far

I'm hoping to produce something similar to fyberduck's gorgeous spun silk:

So please, please if anyone has any tips on what type of silk is best to learn on, and tips on dying and spinning silk, -for a complete beginner, I'd be very grateful  Grin Thank you
