How to spinn from a batt, a roving and a rolag (part 3)


hello Frida here, so to continue directly
from my last videos, click the I in the top corner to watch the playlist, Here I
am spinning directly from a batt and not with my
fingers this time but with my mini spinner from Hansen Crafts with a woolee winder attached, this is an electric spinning wheel and it’s my favourite, my
other wheels stand sadly neglected, it’s just so comfortable sitting snuggled up
in the sofa watching something on Netflix while spinning. I tend to spinn
quite thin and as this is a batt carded directly from looks and not from combed
fiber there are some lumps and bumps and some thick and thin spots, it gives the yarn
character and also it will all even out a bit when we ply the yarn then we have the roag, stretch it out
a little to loosen up the fibers an attach the end to the existing yarn, see
the fibers are already aligned in a triangular drafting zone making it easy
for me to form it into yarn, and if you choose this method to just add one after
the other coffee! coffee is always a good idea or
“Fika” as we say in Sweden, which is a pause with coffee and a treat, google it
is a good thing, and thirdly we have the roving the little birds nests, find the
end that is hopefully still in the middle somewhere and attach and spin as
before these are easy to spin not because the
fibers already started spiraling as in the rolag but because you’ve already
done most of the work beforehand when you drafted it out then we have some speed spinning, and
here you can see the woolee winder doing its thing winding up the yarn and evenly
on the bobbin I love the woolee winder and I have one
for my other modern wheel too next time I’ll ply and finish the yawn,
and don’t forget to vote for what colour I should start a processing next, thank
you so much for watching, please like, share, comment and subscribe that would
mean so much me, see you next time!
