Spinning Video

Today I share with you this video of spinning with a French spindle without a distaff. You will notice that the spinner uses her finger as a make-do distaff to help provide tension and that they must stop spinning to draft. The addition of an actual distaff would enable her to continue spinning while drafting, thus taking less time to spin.
