Welcome St Helen, my latest spindle baby. Number 5 in the Spindle SlutTM, lemming race.

She's nestled in some NZ Possum/merino, camel/silk & cashmere/silk.
Luxury fibers are perfect for spindles, or so I think this week.
All from The Woolery - fab service.

The whole reason I went to the Woolery is they still have copies of High Whorling, sadly out of print, but still availible. I learned so much from this book. I'm self leading on my spindles now & doing the sexy thigh roll. I learned how to stand & sit to not damage my body. And PGR manages to explain the whole woolen/ worsted how to & why in a way that I can finally understand.
Really amazing basic information that will take you beyond your spindle.

Alden may be the end all, be all, but his book makes my head swim & you can't hold in the bathtub very well.
