Hi! I wanted to try spinning my own yarn, so I bought a top-whorl drop spindle and about 200g of ‘dyed merino wool tops’. Where to go from here is the problem.
- are there any videos that show you how to spin on a top whorl (I learn best from videos)?
- Do I need to card/brush/whatever the ‘tops’ to make the fibres lie in the same direction?
I’m heading to a craft show on Feb 1st, so I’ll be taking it all along then to see if anyone there can help, but can anyone point me in the right direction?
