Hot House Flowers

I've noticed that some of the artsy spinners were incorporating dyed silk cocoons in their yarn, and I was excited to see what I could come up with, not really wanting to copy them exactly. I was looking for a way to put my own whimsical stamp in the idea. I hand painted the cocoons with silk dye, then cut and shaped them, nesting the halves to give them a little more personality. It was a blast, I need more cocoons, I have a lot of ideas for creating fun spin-ins with them. This cute little bunch of flowers is ready to spin into some special yarn!

Happy Spring! Blessings Friends!


  1. Wow! So artistic!!! Have you tried to spin them into your yarn?
