Black Coffee or Bitter Chocolate are names that come to mind when looking at this color roving of "next to skin" super soft (19 micron) merino and luxurious tussah silk 70%/30%. Ultra deep brown color and the subtle feel and luster of the tussah. Just beautiful, and great when you want the glorious effect of tussah silk in your project without adding a lot of color. This is seriously soft fiber and great for spinning, weaving, nuno/wet felting as well as needle felting of course. Most merino/silks are an 80/20 blend instead of this 70/30 and they use 21.5 micron merino. This is noticeably finer and softer than the others!
First photo is from the manufacturer and taken from a distance, under bright llight. Last three pics are closeups to show how deep the color is but it's so dark it comes out one dimensional.
