A silky gift
What a wonderful place Snb is! The delightful Dr. Bones has given me the most wonderful bag full of moth cocoons. They come from her kindergarten child's teacher who has these growing, I assume, much to the delight of her charges. I'm fascinated by the different colours, ranging from a creamy colour, through soft palest of pale greens through to the vibrant yellow. I wonder if these differences will be seen in the final product?
I'm so excited. Now I have to go and find out how to turn these cocoons into spinnable silk.
PS The boys all liked their new Christmas tree....hooray!
