Video Wednesday- Medieval Elastic

I thought I’d start out the month with something a little lighthearted, my first wool skein I spun with medieval technique on a distff and spindle. I was told that grasped spinning wouldn’t put enough twist in my yarn, by someone who had never done it.

This is a full 1.5 metre skein. And below I am making fun of it.

  1. Some ofriends my first spinning looked like this. I knitted with it as a single and it worked up perfectly. No twisting or biasing to the knitting. I was pretty proud.
