KnitWit 80: Silk

Filed under: fiber,podcast — autumnbr at 9:53 pm on Monday, February 4, 2013

Today, I talk about the stories and history of silk.
Silk was discovered (unraveled) in 3000 BC by a Chinese princess Xi Ling Shi.  For centuries, China held a monopoly on silk.  Whenever there is something of value, theft  will occur.
In a future episode, I will discuss other aspects of silk.  Should I wait until episode 85 or should I do it next week?
Thanks.  Carry
