Park and Draft: A Gentle Introduction to Spinning Yarn With a Spindle

by | Aug 11, 2021 | Spinning, Techniques & Tutorials

Spindle spinning is a great way to start spinning, but like most crafts, there’s a bit of a learning curve when you begin. “Park and draft” spinning is a gentle first step that can help ease that curve a bit. This method is also great for spinners who have physical barriers to using spindles, and it can be used in intervals to reduce the risk of injury to experienced spinners who want to spin for long periods of time. Experienced spinners can even use it as a method to improve consistency in their drafting.
