This weekend I piddled around with the silk caps some more. I've actually finished spinning the first set of caps (this is less than half an ounce). You can kind of see the texture you get from spinning silk caps - I love all the bumps and chunks in this yarn. The Silkworker has silk caps available on her website again (this is where I got my silk caps). The spindle I'm using is my Emily - it's rosewood and weighs 1.2 ounces and has a fabulous spin time and speed. This spindle is probably tied with my Bossies as my favorite spindles. For some reason I don't hear as much about the Emilys, but I feel like they are an excellent spindle and are a bit cheaper than the Bossies, which is always nice. I have no idea what I'll do with the silk yarn once its all spun, but hopefully it will speak to me.
