I got this in the mail earlier this week from Threads Thru Time …
and let’s just say, we’re working out our kinks. 🙂
I have no experience with Russian spindles so I can’t comment just yet on how well it does it’s job. Currently, back to 10 minutes a day trying to learn this kind of spindle…See that little bit of fiber on there? That’s as far as I got in the first three days!
This is definitely going to take a minute.
I came across something in Ask the Bellwether’s book that spoke of point of twist drafting. I think this is where that comes into play with this spindle, fiber combo. So, I have a new technique to learn. Yay?
Of course, then I touch something like this…
That’s camel fiber. It’s so soft it’s ridiculous. And suddenly, I don’t care how long it takes.
