Silk: The Spice of Life
Dyed silk always looks like something the cat threw up. Silk is absolute magic! You take your silk and "pop" it and it turns into a shiny cloud of softness. I can't remember when I dyed this but it was done with the starter Procion H from Maiwa.
It's not like I don't have other spinning projects on the go or I'm out of things to do...I decided to start spinning this silk today. Just because it's Saturday and it's sunny, I guess. Reasons enough to do whatever you feel like.
Silk is my favourite fibre to spin...not that I would give up all my other fibres but silk is the best. :D
1. Cool breeze coming in the house.
2. Laundry is done and folded.
3. Going out for dinner so no cooking.
