Support spindles are a unique aspect of today’s modern spinning world. This workshop is designed to introduce you to various support spindles. We will cover everything from the little Tahkli to the large Navajo and many in between—Russian, Tibetan, Ahka, bead spindles. You’ll learn how to spin short, fine fibers like cotton and cashmere as well as low-twist, thicker yarns. Learn different ways to remove your yarn from a spindle to store it for plying; and we’ll cover plying and finishing your yarn.
