Cotton Spinning Tips

Cotton needs a lot of twist to hold together as a yarn! You can’t overtwist it!

Practice spinning cotton on a support (Tahkli) spindle to get the feel!

Begin with a long staple (Pima) cotton fiber either in lint (ginned) or Puni (carded into a rolag) form.

Set your wheel’s spinning ratio (wheel to revolutions of bobbin) to the highest, or sit farther back from the orifice.

Adjust your spinning wheel so that there is just enough draw-in to have control of the fibers as you spin.

Relax, sit back, take a deep breath and have fun spinning cotton
