Silk is an easy fiber to spin because of its long fibers. It has less elasticity than wool, but spins into a strong, smooth, and lustrous yarn. Types of Silk
Bombyx Mori Silk is cultivated from a silk worm that lives naturally in the mulberry trees of China and the Far East. It is very white and soft.

• Blends extremely well with other fibers
Spinning silk in the form of a combed top or brick is similar to the way you spin wool. Because the fibers are very slippery and long, a beginner will find it easier to spin from the fold, rather than spinning from the end. This will produce a very smooth, soft, and glossy yarn.
Carded slivers, rolag, of batts will spin well from the end. Silk that has been carded will produce a textured yarn with a matte finished.
