    Yup! If you track back in my journal, there are a bunch of recent entries about it… I’ve been reeling silk, making hankies, raising silkworms, weaving…

    You need to get out more. You’ve been spending too much time in the worm hatchery – or whatever you call it.

    I guess pupa would be appropriate though – in a strange twisted way.

    Will I see you and this weekend? Either early saturday day (around noon/lunch) or sometime Sunday evening? Lemme know.

    Yes. Eri silk actually can’t be reeled at all, because they’re “lazy” spinners and don’t make a continuous thread.

    But any cocoon can be degummed and spun. That’s what I’ve been using to make a lot of my silk hankies.
