Spinning Buffalo Down and Silk

It seems that it's been even longer since I posted about spinning, and it's been longer since I've done any.  I finished up my hanks of buffalo down and silk yarn, but have yet to share the product with you.

2 Ply Buffalo Down Hanspun

The buffalo down was a dream to spin, and it spun up very soft, fine, and airy.  I wound this into a center-pull ball and took both ends, spinning them together to create a two-ply yarn.

2 Ply Silk Handspun

The silk was a trick to prep, but once I had it all carded into rolags, it was lovely to spin as well.  Like the buffalo down, I wound the silk into a center-pull ball and plied it together from both ends.
