want to learn how to spin..starting from scratch


Recommended Posts

I want to learn how to spin yarn but I don't know how or where to start. I live in the city so how can I accomplish this new hobby?


What do I need as far as materials for a beginner?

What are some good online sites with video where I can learn how to do it?

Where can I buy such material?

Is it an expensive hobby?


Thanks in advance.

I've got a web page with links to help you.


The least expensive way to learn is with a hand spindle. Check out youtube for Abby Franquemont's videos. She has a new book out, "Respect the Spindle".


Check out ebay and etsy for roving to spin with.


If you have ANY questions once you get started, please ask us! We love to help new spinners
