Introduction to Drop Spindle Spinning
In this class you’ll learn the fundamental skills needed to be able to spin your own yarn. Using a drop spindle is one of the oldest techniques for making yarn, and it is a perfect thing to take on the go. Learn how to prepare your fibre for spinning, and how to set up your spindle properly. Next, you will learn the basics of spinning yarn and controlling your spindle and fibre as you go. In the second class, you will learn to ply and finish your yarn, so it is ready to use!
