silk update

As some of you know I have been having a sticky time of spinning with silk.. especially of the tussah & silk hanky kind. I came across this fab link with info on how to care for your hands before, during & after spinning silk, which involves the all-time fav remedy Lemon Juice (is there nothing lemon juice won't fix!!)

Have you ever wished your silk was less catchy too? This site also has a recepie for Sesamie Milk, in which to soak the silk before spinning which eases the catchiness of the fiber! I love a good traditional remedy, so i'll report back once I've road-tested it!

I am currently swatching up my handdyed throwsters silk, & hopefully will have some up in store for you soon!!
