I have been taken by surprise. This is my second day spinning silk to fine singles. Silk is a little tricky, but honestly no more difficult than merino, at least to me. As long as I take it slow, I’m fine.
So what’s the surprise? How much I am loving the “silky” feel of the fibers as they go through my fingers. I didn’t expect to like it that much, but I now have a whole new appreciation for the source of that adjective.
So now I’m pumped because I have a BUNCH of silk to spin – the rest of this Tussah silk, a pound of sari silk (yes, from recycled saris, very colorful) and an 18.2 oz. silk lap. Cool. See the pictures below.
