Today I reeled silk for the first time. I took some photos and video that I'll be posting as soon as I can, but I think it was a success.
I reeled 40 Bombyx mori cocoons. It was pretty easy once I got the hang of incorporating new filaments into the main thread when a cocoon ran out of silk or when a filament broke. That was the only tricky part, besides figuring out the setup.
Pics and videos to come!
