Frog hair?

On the left: The single
Center: The single plied on itself
On the right: One strand Coats & Clark Dual Duty Plus sewing thread
The fiber: commercial 50/50 cashmere/silk blend
The spindle: Bosworth mini, sapele mahogany, 12 grams

I tried for the extreme close-up, but the camera couldn't quite handle that level of detail. What you see above is as good as I got. This is what I've been obsessed with for the last couple of days; how thin can we go?

Here's an overview of the spindle and fiber, with a 6" ruler for comparison.
