I have desperately been looking for some Zephyr but can't get it here. All available silk/wool combinations are much thicker. What I could get ist 20/2 Tussah silk and 30/2 Merino.
I also could get a double stand to twist 2 threads together.
No idea how that yarn would turn out and if it could be a substitute for Zephyr or just a waste of money.
Does anybody use a doubling stand and has done something like this before?
I would like to make the overshot scarfs of season 6. My other idea would be to take the tussah as pattern weft and merino as tabby but I don't know if there has to be some wool in the pattern weft to full and fix it or if it could work when merino is the tabby.
Thanks for advice and help!
