In this special double spinning workshop, join expert instructor Amy Tyler and explore worsted and woolen spinning techniques. From the smoothest, densest yarns to the loftiest yarns with the fluffiest halos, you’ll gain essential spinning skills to use in any application, for any project.

In Spinning Worsted Yarn, you’ll learn how to combine both carded and combed fiber preparations to get the yarn you want. Learn the meaning of “drafting with no twist,” how to do it, and get Amy’s expert tips for pre-drafting your fiber for easy spinning. You’ll learn to spin worsted yarns by drafting forward, backward, or both, so you can spin in the way that is most effective and comfortable for you. Plus, learn how to adjust your spinning wheel specifically for worsted spinning.

Then, dive in to Spinning Woolen Yarn. Learn the characteristics of woolen yarns and which fibers and staple lengths are best to create them. With Amy’s instruction, you’ll understand the process of “drafting against twist” and how to create the loftiest yarn possible. You’ll learn three variations of long draw drafting using mill-prepared carded roving, hand-carded rolags, drumcarded batts, and much more. Finally, learn how to adjust your spinning wheel for the best woolen spinning possible

Two for the price of one!
I bought this DVD on sale after looking at it for several months in the "store", and I am very glad I did. The segment on spinning worsted was a bit overdone for me since I am very comfortable with that type of spinning. However her discussion and demonstration of pre-drafting was very well done and useful. I have been pre-drafting more, lately, and her technique has proven to be very effective. The segment on spinning woolen was the real reason I chose to buy this DVD, and it was well worth the purchase. I have struggled with this technique, and her description and demonstration were extremely clear and helpful. I will be utilizing this much more now, since I finally feel as though I understand what I should be doing! Thanks! Review by Deborah (Posted on 9/27/2016)
