Slubby silk skein!

So I finished carding and spinning my dyed cocoons (re earlier post), and just two-plied them together. I ended up with around 330 yards of very slubby laceweight yarn, weighing all of 1.25 ounces.

I'd appreciate suggestions for what to do with it. The obvious option would be a scarf or shawlette, but I worry that it would be too clingy and subject to static because it's so light.

Here's a photo of how it turned out -- I'm quite pleased with it.

Next project: cat hair!
