Drop Spindle Class

Laura did a great job in teaching us to spin and ply wool into yarn on a drop spindle this morning at Twist. Jessica, Jennie and I had our spindles spinning in the air in no time. It's definitely a slower process but I thought it would be a good first step for me to learn how to draft fiber before actually sitting down at the wheel. I'm going to practice this technique until my spinning classes with my new wheel start at the end of the month.
