Thick and Low Twist Yarn

Thick and Low Twist Yarn

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I have been spinning for a little over 5 years and have never once spun on a traditional spinning wheel with treadles. I’m sharing with you my favourite spinning methods on an e-spinner to create thick and low-twist yarns. These types of yarns are wonderful to incorporate into your fibre art as they are quick to weave up due to their thickness and they create beautiful texture as well.

Bamboo Fibre

Bamboo Fibre

I had a lovely customer of mine named Jane ask about spinning bamboo and I thought I'd experiment and do a blog post for others who may be interested as well. 

Bamboo fibre compared to wool is much silkier, softer and lighter. I would consider this to be a more intermediate to advanced fibre to spin on it's own due to its slippery, silky nature. The staple length is approximately 10cm long.

Drop Spindling

Drop Spindling

1 Comment

Drop spindles were one of the first basic tools of spinning yarn by many different cultures around the world. To this day, it's still the most simple and budget friendly tool to use to spin your own unique yarns. Drop spindling is a very slow and methodical craft which I would encourage all yarn enthusiasts to try. Being able to make your own yarn is a really honourable skill and trust me, it makes your woven/knitted/crocheted projects that much more unique and special.
