So here we go - a list of tutorials you may find useful if you are new to drop spindling or want to improve your techniques.
Megan LaCore has a number of videos showing the techniques:
- Drafting Wool for Spinning - Tutorial
- Spinning Yarn on a Drop Spindle - Tutorial
- Finishing Yarn and Wrapping a Skein - Tutorial
I love watching her tutorials - she is very clear and shows what you need to do - the only thing that bugs me is she always has background music playing! I found her blog as well which is full of lots of craft information.
Abby Franquemont also has a number of videos:
Some of Abby's are purely just to watch her spin which is useful once you have the basics. She has a lot of other videos about wheel spinning - but I'll save those until I have the wheel I am borrowing. (Did I tell you all I'm borrowing a spinning wheel? So excited!)
Some videos of Navajo plying:
Will add more links to this later - but have to take the kids out.
