Are you clumsy with the drop spindle, or new to spinning and need some assistance and help getting going? If you find yourself too familiar with the ‘drop’ part of the spindle, this clinic will help get you spinning with confidence and more control over yarn production. Time will be spent learning proper carder use, understanding fibre staple lengths in relation to drafting process, and controlling the twist entering the fibre supply. Those with some basic familiarity with a drop spindle will get the most out of this clinic, but new spinners will learn much to help in understanding the process. Includes all materials and drop spindles for class use, personal spindles and carders welcome.
