I've heard about this before, but never seen it. I have an ancestor who "farmed" silk cocoons, spun them, and all that a hundred years ago. So it's extra interesting to see how it's done. Thanks so much.
stillatthetop -- I completely know what you are talking about. Used to happen to me. But then my Grandmother died and we found boxes of fabric, and then a whole dresser full that she never got to use, and I thought that was really sad. What's the point in saving it if you never end up using it? So I try to just use the beautiful stuff and plunge ahead.
