A while back I was gifted this fat skein of silk/cotton. The individual threads are very fine, a little thicker than regular sewing thread.
I hung it over the back of my office chair trying to work out how to wind it into small balls. Lost my place in time and...the whole thing wound up caught in the base of the swivel chair. The only solution was cutting through the hank.
So now I have hundreds of single threads that are about 42 inches long. Plenty to mess with, right?
I was able to easily tease out eight or ten threads at a time, didn't count, and wound them onto these new plastic spindles, small enough to hold the lengths tight.
And now, we'll see if they like getting dyed. This is pesky shit. Like putting decals on fly wings.
