Yarn spinning on drop spindles is a traditional method that has been used for centuries to create various types of yarn. Drop spindles are simple and portable tools that can be used to turn fiber into yarn. There are various drafting, spinning, and plying techniques that can be employed to create different types of yarn with unique textures and properties. By using a drop spindle, spinners have the flexibility to create yarn anywhere, making it a versatile and accessible method for yarn spinning.

If you're looking to explore the craft of yarn spinning, join our workshop to learn about basic drafting and spinning techniques. Over the course of the 2 sessions, you will also learn about plying your spun singles into multi-ply yarn. 

As part of the workshop series, you will get a kit to bring home with you that includes the following: a 2.5" Schacht Drop Spindle, two cardboard bobbins, fibres to spin and a pouch to keep it all together!

We have a short introductory video about yarn spinning that we would like to share with you. Watch the video to get a better idea about yarn spinning!
