I coloured my hair the other night and once again frantically looked for something I could dye to use up the remainder. I grabbed these few silk caps. They haven't taken the dye quite as well as the wool that I tried last time, but I love the delicious colour.
This is the first time I've tried spinning pure silk straight from the cap. I'm a little disappointed that I haven't managed to get it quite as even as I'd like, but I do love the colour. You have to be heavy-handed with this type of silk - the fibres are very long and strong. Hence the sore thumb! But I do have 20 yds of beautiful yarn. What can I knit with this small sample quantity?
