Spinning Silk

One of our customers, Brenda Giesbrecht, recently sent us images of spectacular silk yarn she has spun using painted Sanjo Bombyx Silk sliver (10-001). We wanted to share them with you so you might be inspired. If you're not yet a spinner, maybe you should consider becoming one. And if you are a spinner, with practice you could create yarn as fine and beautiful as Brenda's.

This image shows how Brenda teases the fibres apart before she begins drafting.

 Once they're spun, and on bobbins, they can be plied. 

Thanks so much, Brenda, for letting us see your gorgeous yarn!

Stay tuned to this spot. We've just received some new spinning fibres from India which are very wonderful. Read about them here soon!
