Spinning is a craft that can be learned in hours, yet has infinite possibilities to be explored over a lifetime. In this video, Sarah Anderson teaches the building blocks you need for a lifetime of successful spinning—twist, draft, and control—and takes us on a tour of the yarn universe to see what you can create. You’ll learn:
The secrets of twist, the “glue” that holds yarn together

Tips and techniques for spinning short fibers such as cotton
Basic balanced plying, chain (Navajo) plying, and troubleshooting
Spiral, cable, crepe, boucle, and other novelty yarns
Dos and don'ts of yarn finishing
Every technique and concept is explained clearly and simply in Sarah’s inimitable, enthusiastic style with video that lets you see all the action in amazing detail. Topics are presented in easy-to-find chapters so you can reference them again and again over your spinning career.
