Step 3: Collect Webs

To collect webs, I first snagged one  side of the web, and carefully twisted the web,  carefully pulling off silk threads from the leaves, until I had a the fibers in a length. I avoided breaking any threads whenever possible, in order to keep the original threads as long as they could be, before having to twist on a new length of silk.

I then wound the length of silk on a smooth stick (the stalk of a lily) temporarily, while I gathered more silk.
