SLOW TO QUICK: EASE YOUR WAY INTO LONGDRAW

The use of long draw techniques has such great benefits for the handspinner. Those lofty, warm, and airy yarns can be produced by use of a long draw method. For many handspinners, long draw methods are quite a mystery and can be frustrating. So let’s remove the obstacles. Learn how to properly set up your spinning wheel to ease your way into supported and unsupported long draw, how to choose the best prep for practicing and achieving the results you want, and learn how these techniques can be used for other spinning equipment.

SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED:  Intermediate

PREREQUISITE:  Students should have some experience using a spinning wheel and know how to spin a consistent yarn.
