Spinning 101

EVERYTHING I know about how to spin singles on a drop spindle!

Made for a complete beginner to learn how to spin, there’s lots of content for anyone interested in drop spindle spinning basics and how I spin.

I walk you through making your first single yarn, going through each step with you. In my usual style there’s all sorts of tidbits of info I share along the way.

This video covers not only what to do, but what to do when something goes wrong! So don’t fear, if it’s not working, chances are I’ll show you how to fix it.

As well as how to spin, I also talk about

  • the different techniques for top whorl, bottom whorl & Turkish spindles
  • different kinds of fibre prep you might come across

If you’ve any questions (or I’ve made a mistake) please leave me comments!
