In fiber arts, the word “worsted” can mean so many things from yarn grist and weight to a smooth texture achieved through spinning techniques and fiber preparation. It can be confusing! Join expert instructor Amy Tyler and eliminate any confusion you may have. In this video workshop, you’ll learn how to spin beautiful worsted yarns using short draw techniques.

First, you’ll learn a variety of short draw spinning strategies that are useful for creating many different types of yarns. Create exactly the yarn you want by combining both carded and combed fiber preparations with your new toolbox full of short-draw spinning methods. Then, learn what “drafting with no twist” means and how to do it, as well as Amy’s expert tips for pre-drafting your fiber for easy spinning.

Finally, learn how to draft forward, backward, or both so you can spin in the way that is most effective and comfortable for you. You’ll learn how to adjust your spinning wheel for worsted spinning.

Good as far as it goes
This film is fine as far as it goes, but having read Peter Teal fantastic book on "Hand Woolcombing and Spinning, I was disappointed that all the spinning was shown on a Saxony type wheel and no mention or demonstration given of spinning techniques on the drop spindle or the Great Wheel, which was, after al,l where hand spinning started, and it would seem that the Great Wheel was the wheel most used before the industrial revolution, and was the wheel that the mechanised spinning machines were based on. I think that the extra techniques for spinning on the drop spindle and great wheel would have been worth including even if it made the cost of the video higher, because it would have then given a more complete picture of spinning worsted yarns.
