I've got a stack of silk hankies somewhere, beautifully dyed by a friend of mine. I need to get them out and do something with them, eh?
I've never spun silk before, though, so I'm waiting till I can really focus on it. (Which, I'm beginning to fear, may be after I retire...)
Does the silk need to be plyed?


I dont think it has to be plyed but Im pretty new at this. Im plying mine because my singles have lots of twist and are very fine. Apparently, the more twist you add to your spun silk, the shinier is will be.


When I stop learning, Id better be dead.
