Rating: 5
I’m demonstrating Alden Amos’ method of plying, which I’ve dubbed “continuous plying”. It’s a really good way to ply on e-spinners, since they spin continuously at the speed you’ve selected. Mr. Amos describes this plying in his book, The Big Book of Handspinning. For more notes on spinning, see my blog, www.askthebellwether.com
