The carrier rods: picture here

This was a lot of fun to spin. The fiber length for the rods was about an inch, but I had about a dozen cocoons stuck in the rods, for which the fiber length can be more than an arm’s length! I cut this as I could and spun mostly long draw, but had to work the long cocoon fibers in the inch worm fashion. The hand and luster of the finished yarn are lovely.
My problem is that I am compiling quite a collection of yarns from the various forms of silk, each yarn only about an ounce. Not that the collection of itself is a problem, but I am wondering what to do with it all. I would like to not see these yarns end up in a tub or a drawer, I want to use them for something!
