Because I have so much free time...

I have just ordered off Etsy a beginner's spindle kit! It took a while to find a nice one that didn't involve animal hair, although in the end that problem was solved as the seller kindly substituted the original wool by bamboo.

A not insignificant part of the reason I want to learn how to spin, even if just with a spindle, is to improve my skills for the zombie apocalypse. If I can survive the initial chaos, I have the awesome skill of being able to make clothes out of sticks and string, and I want to be able to spin my own yarn as well. All for the zombie apocalypse, baby!


  1. *huge smile*

    I see an addiction coming on!
    Welcome to the spinning community.


  2. Have you found Wingham? (www.winghamwoolwork.co.uk/fbr_vegetable.php)? Clothes from vegetables after the zombie apocalypse. Do you think you could PM me when it happens? I don't want to miss it!

  3. I'll let you both know how the spinning is going when it gets here!

    Evelyn123, I hadn't heard of Wingham, but it looks perfect and exactly what I need, thank you!

  4. How you just have to learn how to lassoo a sheep - or in your case, grow cotton bushes :D
