Here's the bunch of silk fluff I got from Oliver Twists at Wonderwool Wales.

This is what I've spun so  far.

                                                    And I started a new bobbin so I could make 2 ply, producing this in 1 hour. 
I've been looking for a shawl pattern that will suit it, so I need something that's not too fine and lacy because of its handspun uneven nature, so I am thinking that a Multnomah would do the job nicely. 


  1. What absolutely luscious silk yarn you've made!
    Your shawl is sure to be stunning.

  2. What amazing colors! I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

  3. Very similar to the silk I bought from Oliver Twists. Does it spin nicely?

  4. Thanks Heather & Erin! I'll keep at it...but it's going to be a while. So many projects... :o)

    Lydia, it was seeing yours that pushed me into doing some more. Yes, it spins easily, but sometimes too easily in that it can spin toooo finely, then it goes 'ping'. I'm looking forward to seeing how it plies.
