We had talked about using this roving for spinning. I am using yarn made from only this silk. I bought the yarn spun already. I was using it on my loom so it really does not matter. When I got it the skein felt wonderfully soft and had drape. When I started weaving with it there was some very rough spots it was like it was hard it would not work for knitting at all so if any one purchased the roving (I did) and when I spin it up I will experiment more but it looks like it will have to be added to something else. The only thing I can see is the yarn I purchased was from a much bigger strand of material then the combed roving I bought. So just a thought for all of you.
