Fall Fluff

WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO TOUCH THIS FIBER?

At October’s close, we had a gorgeous fall day and I collected some milkweed pods.  I have every intention of spinning all of it.  I did make a supported spindle from a pine nut and a piece of wire to try it out.  It was relaxing! Every turn of the spindle spread the fresh pine oil into the crisp air. I love camping and finding treasures to inspire.img_20161028_122446397

    1. thanks for the comment!!
      It’s latin name is “Asclepias” a plant very common in the US. There are many varieties…we just call it milkweed, because the SAP inside the stem looks like milk.
