Semi-Worsted Handspinning Technique

Worsted Hand Spinning

In this video, I’m using a Worsted method of spinning. The yarn that will be produced will be worsted type of yarn. I am spinning a combed Shetland wool top.

The worsted method is also sometimes called “inch-worm” because your hand inches along down the wool bundle.

In this type of spinning, the twist happens between the wheel and the fingers of my right hand.
The spinning wheel is doing the work of twisting the yarn and of drawing it onto the bobbin. I’m lightly pinching the wool with my thumb and first fingers, just enough to keep the twist from going into the roving.

My right hand also controls how much wool is being picked up from the roving and what direction in the roving the wool is going. My right hand slides down the wool bundle an inch at a time. My left hand holds the wool bundle lightly.
