Hello, today I am sharing more of my spinning fibres experiments. This time they are more experimental materials for me. I have no clue what I could or will use the silk noil for.

Making a Shirt

Alright here is my first post about making clothing (in detail)! Before now all of my posts have just sort of haphazardly mentioned at the end of posts – basically just blips. No substance. And I thought that the shirt that I just finished making was worth talking about in detail so here we go.
