“Spinning cotton has been a decades-long passion for me, and I am so glad that you have come to explore more about this exciting fibre.
For millenia, humans have had a close and vital association with cotton, but during the 20th century much of the knowledge about hand spinning cotton fell from general use, and cotton became a fibre that spinners shied away from. “Cotton has too short a staple length,” they would say. “That must mean it’s hard to spin!” But they would be wrong. With the tips and techniques I teach, I’ll have you spinning this wonderful fibre in a jiffy. Nothing feels better on your body than hand-spun cotton garments!
I have a variety of articles on many aspects of working with cotton on my website.”
