Maryland Sheep and Wool

So much to see, and so much fun. I bought little odds and ends: a small skein of cashmere, a merino and camel sock yarn, little silk skeins, little hemp skeins, and three skeins of lace-weight pure wool from a Welsh lady.

I've always wondered HOW exactly silk cocoons are unraveled. Now I know:

I will spare you the photos of the worms inside those cocoons, they are quite yucky.
