Spun Silk

Using my Ashford Traveller (my at home wheel) in double drive and my high speed flyer I was finally able to spin fine weight wool and silk. I was also finally able to spin "Z". That is spun to the right. I have always spun "S", to the left and plied Z. The silk hankies I bought from Spunky Eclectic bare and dyed myself. I then plied it with some colonial combed top. I have 139 yards so far. I hope to spin enough for a shawlette.
Fibres used and end result
