A drop spindle is the ideal way to learn to spin. We can slow the process right down into its different stages while learning skills which are also transferable to a spinning wheel. You will learn how to create unique yarns from wool fibre. Spindle spinning us a slow, almost meditative, process and a spindle is an inexpensive, versatile and portable tool. Spindles available, fibre included. In this class you'll work on handling and drafting fibre, introducing twist, spinning and plying.
