1.0 A&S 2 Spinning by hand - an ancient necessity Lady Caitríona inghean Uí Shíodhach Spinning has been a staple of human existence for millennia. Before the advent of the spinning wheel about 1000 years ago, every sail on every ship, every item of clothing that was knit, woven started on a spindle of some sort. Drop spindles, which is what this class will focus on, are a relatively modern version of spindle, but there is evidence of such in many cultures. We will work on the base skills you need to successfully spin wool fiber with a drop spindle. Kits will be provided with a wooden drop spindle and wool roving, which is really all you need to get started, aside from patience and persistence, which you will have to bring with you. Once you master one fiber, on one spindle, you will eventually be able to transfer the skill to other fibers and spindles of other weights, and even to spinning wheels, that adaptation that has only been around for about 1000 years. If you have fiber and spindles, feel free to join in and just spin for fun.
