It's Spinning Time!!

When it comes to spinning, there is nothing like spinning the finest in fibers--silk! Bombyx Silk is the greatest to spin--well, it almost spins itself--such long delicious fibers that move easily through your fingers.
One bobbin finished....................

Beginning the second bobbin..............

such a fine single thread.....................
And now to ply the two bobbins together for that finished yarn..................
Usually when I ply, I ball the bobbin and then ply with thread inside and outside, but silk is so slick that it will knot up in the process

A nice fine two ply thread ready for weaving!
A full bobbin for that special project............

since I didn't have a coin handy to show the size of the two play, I used my pencil instead.  It will be skeined and the twist set.
