Where to find/ who makes this kind of yarn? I'm craving ----
I'm craving a silk sort of "thick and thin" look yarn ..... in beautiful hand-dyed colors. (or undyed? I guess) Anyone making this? I'd make it myself but I don't know how to spin!

How about this? It's 100% silk yarn that differs in thickness and texture with a variation of colors.

FYI: I've heard it's harder to hand dye silk because it take s a LOT more time and patience because the dye doesn't soak into the fibers as well.
