Fiber Talk Interviews Wormspit

Fiber Talk has a fun interview with Michael Cook of Wormspit.  Michael raises his own silkworms, spins their coccoons into silk fiber, dyes it and stitches with it.  It's an amazing look at how silks are made.

Fiber Talk has a lot of videos about silkworms down lower on the page which you might want to look at.

You can explore Michael's website here, look at his needlework, admire antique silk reels and follow his blog.  Don't miss the section on Saganishiki, which is silk and paper woven brocade.
