Spinning Silk

Silk is one of the luxury fibers that new spinners are likely to try first after they've mastered wool—it is so seductively beautiful with its incredible luster and ability to take color. There are many different characteristics of yarn spun from bombyx silk and tussah silk fibers and the steps to best spin the fiber with different techniques in mind. Bombyx mori silk is cultivated from a silkworm native to Eastern Asia. Tussah silk describes the wild silk cultivated from wild silkworms. Both silk fibers are very suitable for hand spinning, because of the long fibers, durability and dyeing capabilities.
