South West Trading Company Karaoke Top
Karaoke is a 50% SoySilk and 50%fine wool blend.
So much like spinning silk or Tencel, you will find the same pleasure spinning this new fiber. With a staple length
between three and four inches, a fine fiber diameter and surface that allows the fibers to slide past each other, drafting
this material to the thickness you want is easy.
As a wool spinner, trying anything silky was intimidating, but this fiber, as it is mixed with wool, was an easy transition for
me, and then it made moving to Bamboo and SoySilk all the easier. Plus the colors spun up beautifully!!!
Split the roving to a pencil thickness and spin from this. Keep your hands at least four inches apart due to the fiber
length. Draft the fibers to the thickness you want before allowing any twist into the fibers which will lock them together.
