Cotton was perhaps the most important fiber of the ancient world, clothing more people throughout history than any other. It remains one of the most important fibers today - think underwear and bluejeans! Sheets and towels! Yet cotton has been largely neglected by contemporary spinners in the developed world.  Stephenie Gaustad aims to change all that. In this engaging video, you'll learn:

  • How to prepare cotton, from boll to batt
  • How to spin cotton with ease and efficiency on a wide range of tools, from tahkli to flyer wheel
  • How to boil off and set twist in preparation for weaving, knitting, or what have you

Along the way, you'll be treated to fascinating historical asides, to inventive tricks for devising and adapting tools, and to an array of splendid made goods from socks to smocks to household cloths.

Perfect for those just learning about spinning cotton
Rating
Outstanding video for a newbie interested in learning about spinning cotton. I love Stephenie's knowledge, humor, and ability to break things down for those of us just learning. I would love to sit by her in her studio drinking up all her knowledge, stories, and lessons learned. BTW - I love watching the beautiful "dance" between Stephenie and her great wheel. Very inspiring! Review by Cindy Lou (Posted on 8/20/2017)
Stephanie Gaustad is a superb teacher..
THis two part exploration about spinning cotton is delightful, professional, and very useful. Unlike most craft videos, it is organized, accurate, and you can easily see the details being discussed. Stephanie's expertise really shows. Review by Susan (Posted on 8/19/2016)
Great addition to my spinning techniques
I have been spinning cotton for a few years and have tried a few ways. I loved watching this video as it was clear and easy to understand. I could see someone who is very comfortable working with cotton on various spinning tools and I found a couple of tips very helpful in watching the drafting style. Good direction in how to achieve a well spun cotton thread. Review by Dr Doolitle (Posted on 12/23/2013)
