Silk has been called the “Queen of Fibers”. Find out why as you spin silk produced by four different species of moth, in four different forms. This workshop will concentrate on the different methods of spinning top, sliver, mawata,and reeling waste from Bombyx mori, the cultivated silk moth. Then we will move on to spinning Tussah, Muga, and Eri silk, which are prepared from the cocoons of moths that are farmed outdoors in orchards or collected “wild”. Wheels and spindles are both welcome.
