Cotton was perhaps the most important fiber of the ancient world, clothing more people throughout history than any other. It remains one of the most important fibers today - think underwear and bluejeans! Sheets and towels! Yet cotton has been largely neglected by contemporary spinners in the developed world. Stephenie Gaustad aims to change all that. In this engaging video, you'll learn:
- How to prepare cotton, from boll to batt
- How to spin cotton with ease and efficiency on a wide range of tools, from tahkli to flyer wheel
- How to boil off and set twist in preparation for weaving, knitting, or what have you
Along the way, you'll be treated to fascinating historical asides, to inventive tricks for devising and adapting tools, and to an array of splendid made goods from socks to smocks to household cloths.
