Spinning Bombyx Silk

Spinning Bombyx Silk 1Please excuse the Laundry Basket.  This was the only place I could get a really good picture of my Bombyx silk, my bathroom/laundry room.  The lighting picked up the purples much better than in the living room.  I am very pleased with how this turned out.  I purchased Witchy Woman silk from WoolieBullie so that I would have some black silk for autumn rolags I created to prepare for Spinzilla!  I love how much silk is in an ounce, so I was able to create this cabled silk yarn, 4 plies total.  It is only about 40 yards long but it is beautiful and will create a remarkable project once I decide what I want to do with it.

Happy Crafting!

    1. Thanks a lot! No, I am sorry to say that I have not knitted with it yet. Right now my Knitting skills are limited to cast on, knit, purl, and cast off. I can do some increasing and decreasing but improving my knitting skills is on my list! Have a great day and Happy Crafting!
