Thick, thin and coily things

 Just got done with a Utah fiber fest and did quite well!  Lot's of folks interested in spinning and sold a ton of my yarns.  It makes me happy that the labor of my love is going to good homes;)  On to the next show....I signed up for a local craft and holiday show in Salt Lake. It's one of the biggest shows of the season here. What was I thinking!!  I am spinning like a crazy woman to get inventory for the show. Luckily a friend of mine who raises alpacas, knits and spins will share the booth with me.  Between all the washing, dying and spinning I finally made two on spinning thick and thin yarn and the second how to make coils from the thick and thin yarn. 

Enjoy the videos and when you make your thick and thin or coils I would LOVE to see your work! 


How to spin thick and thin yarn

How to spin coiled yarn


  1. I love this tutorial! I tried it myself with semi-success! I need to spin my thin sections a little bit thicker, but I came back to your video multiple times to make sure I was doing it right! Thanks!

  2. Thank you SO much for all your posts and videos... I can't tell you how much you've taught me.
    I did some coils but really need to have the new wheel get here so I can spin the bigger yarns. (It's only a few more days, it's only a few more days...).
    I came over to help you get to 1,000 fans but found out I'm already a fan :-)

  3. Bardzo fajny sposób, na pewno wypróbuję

  4. Thank you for your tutorials. Your yarn is so beautiful. I really want to try it. Have a nice day!
