Hello friends! Welcome to my first tutorial video! These are very basic and meant for people who just want to have fun and enjoy themselves while doing something crafty.

If you haven't been brought here from my spinning packet, then welcome anyway! Hopefully this video will help anyone trying to learn to use a drop spindle in a very casual way.

*EDIT* I'm working on making the spinning kits nicer! I.e. more colors, nicer packaging, etc.

For now, you can find the drop spindles used in this video in my Etsy shop, found here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MeganERisk?...


Whorl - the weighted part of a drop spindle that helps it to spin. Also the spindle pulley that regulates the speed of a spinning wheel spindle.

Draft – the pulling out of fibers to allow only a certain amount of the fiber to twist into thread.

Drop spindle – (hand spindle) a stick with a weighted whorl that is used to twist fibers into thread.

Plying – winding two or more yarns together; must be done in the opposite direction to that in which they were spun.

Roving – long tubes of carded wool, produced by carding machines.
