Spindles are amazing tools to start spinning. Spindle spinning is a great way to spin all different kinds of fiber and yarn without investing in a spinning wheel. We’ll explore basic drafting and spinning on a spindle to see how it can be controlled in a way that helps a new spinner understand twist. You’ll learn to spin on high-whorl, low-whorl, and Turkish spindles as well as using the Andean ply technique. We'll evaluate different spindles and learn how to match spindles with various fibers.
