NOTES FROM THE DESIGNER
"I’ve documented and refined my four-year journey to create the first Learn to Spin Kit for Loom & Spindle – The complete kit for spinning your first yarns.
In addition to the necessary inclusions of a spinning kit, a drop spindle and a 100% Aussie grown and processed fibre supply, I’ve carefully put together a series of notes and tools to introduce you to the language and mechanics of spinning your first yarns. Including:
- A simplified method for spinning your first yarns, highlighting the four easy-to-remember action steps - PINCH-TWIST-PARK-DRAFT.
- Guidance on how to prepare for a spin, for a more enjoyable spinning experience. And,
- An introduction to the language of spinning and tools you can use to measure and evaluate your yarns for more intentional spinning.
By offering this kit my hope is that I can provide you with a new opportunity to be creative with yarn and fibre, and extend your passion for making." Andrea Rothwell, Loom & Spindle

ABOUT WOOL TOP
Wool top is a carefully prepared wool product in which fibres are aligned in the same direction using a mechanical combing process. The result is a smooth, and often silky fibre preparation favoured by hand spinners and textile artists.
