In this Fiberygoodness short course, Evanita will take you through the process of successful spindle spinning with the Turkish Spindle. This is the kind of spindle that allows you to create a beautiful center pull ball (‘turtle’) of yarn right on the spindle, removing the spinning ‘arms’ to free your spun yarn when done.

You have probably seen the beautiful results of Evanita’s spindle spinning! You will see how she winds on her yarn and tidies up the threads to get these beautiful ‘turtles’. Make your own stunning singles by following the video demonstrations and working through the course notes and text that Evanita has carefully put together.

This self paced course can be started at any time, and has three sections: Singles, Plying, and Nplying, plus Troubleshooting and an FAQ for tips and tricks. You will have both a written text with plenty of detail to work from, as well as almost an hour in total of video examples and demonstrations.

Evanita has really made an art of Turkish Spindle spinning and shares her process and expertise in a very clear and easy to follow way.
