First of all, thank you for investigating this Crafty Dog Craft Kit, because once you start making, you are keeping a traditional craft alive!

 

 

What’s in Crafty Dog Drop Spindle Spinning Kit?

Although each kit has an​​​​​​ unique bag and fibre colourway (this kit is called AUTUMN MIST - see first photograph), the contents are as illustrated in the second photograph and comprise:

  • A wooden drop spindle with a leader yarn attached
  • Instructions on how to start spinning
  • minimum of 3 mini-rolags of mixed fibres 
  • A spindle spun bracelet...
  • ..and the instructions and a button to make a spindle spun bracelet of your own!

 

More projects are available at www.thespotteddog.online/blog 'FREE STUFF'

The instructions for using your drop spindle should get you started, but if you'd like some 1:1 spinning tuition or tips then please get in touch!

 

 

Crafty Dog Crafting Tips - Whatever project I am working on, my ethos is to enjoy and respect the yarn that I choose to work with, whether it is commercially produced, rescued from a charity shop, unravelled from an old garment, or hand spun, so if you feel that a different hook size or needle size would work better with the yarn of your choice, then feel free to change to get the gauge and texture you like.

 

It’s the same with spinning – if the fibre wants you to spin chunky, then go with the chunky!

 

Likewise with the bracelet instructions enclosed - they are there to get you started, and when you feel confident, try making a longer twisted yarn to add a personal touch to gift wrapping, or perhaps use the spun yarn to make a woven hanging.....wrap around a plant pot holder....tie several lengths together to make a funky skinny scarf....

 

So – fibre at the ready, here we go, let the creating commence!
