Are you allowed to make requests here? ;) ------
I don't know how to spin or I'd make it myself! But any spinners here spinning/ or could spin a sort of "thick and thin" feel/ texture yarn in silk or silk-like fibers? (corn silk etc.). Dyed or undyed! Thanks! (I'd buy it p.s. I just have a desire for this sort of yarn and can't find it! ) ......

Did you find any thick/thin silk??

I've spun 100% silk but it's a pretty consistant thread size and not thick/thin at all.
