Learn to spin using the simple and portable hand spindle – sometimes called a drop spindle. Some variation of this method has been used from prehistoric times on every continent exept Antartica. Once you have learned on the hand spindle, it is much easier to spin on the wheel.
Rebecca will teach you either method. $25/person, $30/pair, spindle kit $15, wool included.
