So new, that I haven’t even started yet. Just researching! I went to a spinning demonstration at the zoo last week and have decided that I’d like to try a drop spindle. One of the women says she only uses Golding spindles. They are beautiful, but too pricey for a beginner. I also like the looks of the CopperMoose spindles and those fall into my price range.
I know I can make one from a CD, and will probably give it a try.
What do the different weights and diameters of spindles mean? Do I want a top or bottom whorl? How do I go about picking one?
I am planning on going to a Fibre Festival at the end of May, but wanted to have some info before I go. I bought the Interweave publication: Spin it… Making Yarn from Scratch. It has nice pics of what to do once you have a spindle, but no advice on buying one.
Thanks for any info.
