Couldn't wait to spin the two batts I bought at the wool festival, and finished them last night. There's about 100g here. I've spun it as a single, thick and thin. Not sure what it's going to be yet.
The first cocoon is substantially thicker, and another day should see it finished. It then has to sit for a week before it can be processed further.
Another worm started to spin last night in one of the toilet roll inners I put around the edge of their plastic box. I split the cardboard tubes lengthwise and pulled them apart a little bit so the silkworms could crawl in by themselves. I don't know if you can see, but it's just starting to shape the cocoon around itself.
The biggest surprise though, was the worm in the "sick bay" which I thought was on it's way out. Last night it, too, started to spin. It's drawn a leaf around itself and is spinning inside.
Today I made a sort of open-weave framework of mulberry twigs and put it in their box for them to spin amongst, mainly because I knew I didn't have enough toilet roll inners for 70 (ish) worms. Within a few minutes, three silkworms had climbed up onto it, so maybe that's the best option.
