Ok, two separate questions but suri is silky, no? Anyhow, the silkworm question is that I'm raising them, my babies are 5 days old and super cute, but I'm wondering if anyone who has raised them before has any advice...exactly how helpless are the buggers? I've been home a lot this week and seem to be spending all my time transfering them from old leaves to fresh leaves...they do travel a bit, but not all of them move to the new leaves within what I think is a reasonable amount of time. Also, best way to transfer? Their baby silk makes moving them hard.
Oh and the suri question is whether anyone has spun it, how they prepared the fleece (spun from locks, carded, combed?) and what they thought. I might buy a 10 lb fleece, but I've never spun it before, so wanted to check on people's opinions before getting that much.
