Merino/Tussah Silk

The nice thing about the cooler weather is that I have been able to rediscover my love for spinning. This is good, since Salvbard had just been noting that all summer and then through September and October I hadn't touched my wheel. It isn't that I love her any less, but it isn't until the weather cools that I really love to spin.

This is what I have on the bobbins at the moment: some lovely merino/tussah silk from Mind's Eye Yarns. It is absolutely lovely to spin, but I am not sure how much of a tight twist is needed with this sort of blend. It is my first time working with silk at all. Any experienced spinners out there with some advice?
