A very useful video.
Just as I bought this video I was starting a large project, a sweater for my husband, spun from three different fleeces. I had already found out the hard way from a previous sweater that the commercial pattern's requirement for yarn was far less than I would need. This video helped me work out fairly simply the amount I would actually require. It was a great help. I am a new spinner (2 years) and found the tips and hints and encouragement very relevant. For example, don't judge the finished article by the first lot of singles you spin! Review by Nancey (Posted on 11/6/2015)
