So you can spin a continuous yarn on your spindle and you know how to ply. What next? 

This class will show you a number of small tricks, tips and techniques for getting more out of your spindling time. We’ll look at techniques such as the butterfly wind on, how to begin without a leader, and ways of winding your singles onto your spindle. We’ll discuss plying and ways to make it more efficient. We’ll compare top & bottom whorl spindles and also talk about other types of spindles, including supported spindles like the Navajo spindle and tahkli.
