After trying to spin the silk rods i here by declare that they aren't worth the time or the money spent on them! The silk bell was interesting to spin kind of like a cob web. The silk cocoons were just cool to say "yup, i did it". Plus they have the grossest little worm that you have to extract.
And...this is what i spun from the silk bell and the cocoons, not much, but it was fun!
