Cactus Silk

Look what else I received in today's mail. I got the "heads up" at my spinning group on the weekend and got some Cactus silk - yep, CACTUS SILK. My understanding is there are two types of Cactus silk; the fibre from the agave plant in Morocco/Mexico, and rayon. This silk is supposed to be from the plant.
Isn't it just stunning. The colours are so vibrant. I can't wait until I have a play. I will ply it with some fibre, and maybe even use some of the silk for my lacemaking.
