How to Get Started with Spinning Yarn

Felicia Lo Wong, spindles and learning to Spin on the Taking Back Friday vlog

Lately we’ve been talking a lot about spinning, and that is because right now in the School of SweetGeorgia, we are doing a Spinning Study Group. It’s a nine-week study plan all about helping people improve their spinning techniques; learning about the things that affect the yarn you create, and how to do a better job of making that yarn. But what if you don’t know how to spin yarn. What about if you’re interested in learning how to start, but you don’t even know where to begin. We talk a lot about fibre, we talk about wool, but what about the tool that you need in order to spin yarn.

Spindles and spinning supplies

Join me on today’s Taking Back Friday vlog where I take you through my little collection of spindles – we’ll talk about what to look for, what to avoid, and what would be just fun to play with – plus how to get started with spinning yarn.

I would love to hear from you… tell me if you’ve never spun before and are curious about learning how to spin. Or, if you have been spinning for awhile, what kind of advice or suggestions can you give to brand new spinners, to help someone on their way. Let me know in the comments!
