Defining Moment #4

My ability to spin a consistent yarn took a huge leap forward when I recognized how to change the grist of my yarn without making changes to either the fibre prep or spinning ratio. I could spin a thicker yarn by simply working closer to the orifice and a thinner yarn by working further away.

Once I recognized this, I also realized if I wished to achieve a consistent yarn, without thicker and thinner spots, I needed to pay attention and work at the same distance from the orifice for the entire spin.

  1. Another great defining moment. Thank you so much for posting these, #3 has been a so helpful in reminding me to have a light hand, seeing that fibre on the combs confirmed just how much variation in length you can end up in just a few staples that all look the same ?
