The other thing in the box was silk coccons.... They too will be spun up for my fiber notebook. I had no idea silk worms died to give us their silk.... but then again being born with no mouths might shorten their lives too.
Really Painty is Awesome and I am going to have great fun learning all I can about raw cotton and processing silk cocoons. (Did I mention she left the seeds in the cotton and I am going to save them and plant them in what I am calling a fiber garden this spring?)
So what plants can I grow in my fiber garden? Cotton I know but Hemp is out of the question because Mom is the Mommy and she said so .... LOL Any other suggestions? and Remember I have to be able to get seeds and it has to be able to be grown in Oklahoma.
