(Masking tape made a cameo appearance in the video as well, but was too shy to pose for a group photo!)

If you struggle to get the fiber started on your supported spindle, or it just won’t stayย on the spindle shaft long enough for you to draft and spin the fiber, this video is for you!

I demonstrate two different techniques for starting the fiber, and explain how to wrap the fiber around the spindle shaft in a way that works with your spinning instead of against it.ย
