Drop spindle spinning is the name we give to a type of suspended spinning that is very popular amongst modern crafters. We give it this name to differentiate it from other types of spinning. There are other ways to spin suspended. I don’t always spin suspended but when I do it’s different to the drop spindle spinning you might be familiar with. In this video I talk briefly about the difference.
Loved the video. Thanks for sharing. I really learned from the closeup video. I could never see how the yarn went to the spindle and how it was supported. I will need to watch it a few more times to get the swing of it. I love drop spinning and and agree the public have no idea how fast it really goes. I made my best wollen spun yarn on a drop spindle and my best semi worsted on a wheel. I guess that way I can justify more toys, right? Thanks again.
