Project of the day: hand spun silk rope

This is a length of rope made from silk yarn. It’s tied in a prosperity knot and makes a nice pendant. I made a small rope-twisting tool to make custom lengths, diameters, fibers & colors. Silk, cashmere, and other threads can be purchased to twist. You won’t find cashmere rope at Lowe’s.
