Yarnspinners Tales's Podcast
Exploring the world of fiber, one draft at a time.

Besides going over the spinning during the final days of the Tour de Fleece, I discuss several topics in detail.

First is my experience with spinning on a quill set up on my Ashford Traditional.  A photo of the quill can be seen here.  I also recommend searching Youtube for good videos if you plan to try this too.  Here is one that shows a quick method for wrapping the single onto the cop.

Second I talk about spinning Suri alpaca, both on a drop spindle and a spinning wheel.

Last is a discussion of plying and one of my observations and ah ha moments.
