Silk Cap Spinning

I introduced the group to spinning silk caps from swifts at yesterday's meeting. Some preferred pulling the caps into roving and spinning that way. We spun the silk that was dyed at our Roc Day gathering.

K. is knitting a sweater from her Shetland hand spun. She is using all the natural colors from her flock. Lovely.
