This is Val making her first attempt at spinning silk rovings - not bad for a spinner of only three months experience! She is so new to spinning that she hasn't even got her own wheel yet - but is already very accomplished. When you can spin long draw you can spin anything regardless of the length of staple; as silk is a continuous filament I think this proves the point. I am very proud of my new pupil! She is spinning on a Haldane double band drive at present.
