Spin Worsted-style - The Short Draw

About :

This drafting technique has many names: worsted drafting, short-draw, inchworm.... It's simple and straightforward, as this video demonstrates. With high-quality combed wool (which this is not!), drafting this way makes a smooth, dense yarn.

This technique is great for other combed fibres, too, maximizing the sheen of silk, Tencel, or bamboo, and making sure that that alpaca you want to use as warp will be firm and nep-free.

The fibre used here is a low-grade wool. It was combed, but still contains a few tiny knots and neps. All the same -- it makes a dandy, smooth yarn when drafted this way.

Take a look, then try it yourself!

Thank you! That was so helpful - not only were your hands and their movements clearly video'ed and the fiber easy to see because of its colour and the black background, but the printed commentary was concise and informative. I loved the music too.

Wonderful video, thank you. The pinch-draft-pinch-release segment (2:52) is great. I will try it!! and i agree with previous commenter, the black skirt was an excellent choice, i can see your spinning perfectly.

Thank you (all of you!). The music in this video is by a group named LĂșnasa, and the song is "Harp and Shamrock". Pretty, isn't it? It's good spinning music, I think. :-) Ruth

Love it! Great choice of the black skirt to let the wool be very visible. Nice close ups and explanation. I was wondering what the music was? I REALLY enjoyed it :)
