First of all, thank you for investigating this Crafty Dog Craft Kit, because once you start making, you are keeping a traditional craft alive!
The instructions for using your Stick Spinning Kit should be HERE https://www.instagram.com/tv/CC8vO1Sjz09/
However, PLEASE get in touch to access NO CHARGE tutorial advice.
Crafty Dog Crafting Tips - Whatever project I am working on, my ethos is to enjoy and respect the yarn that I choose to work with, whether it is commercially produced, rescued from a charity shop, unravelled from an old garment, or hand spun, so if you feel that a different hook size or needle size would work better with the yarn of your choice, then feel free to change to get the gauge and texture you like.
It’s the same with spinning – if the fibre wants you to spin chunky, then go with the chunky!
Likewise with the bracelet instructions on the FREE STUFF blog - they are there to get you started, and when you feel confident, try making a longer twisted yarn to add a personal touch to gift wrapping, or perhaps use the spun yarn to make a woven hanging.....wrap around a plant pot holder....tie several lengths together to make a funky skinny scarf....
'But what happens if I run out of fibre?' I hear you cry!! No worries! Contact me to buy my custom blended batts and rolags of locally sourced Jacobs, Poll Dorset, Herdwick, Gotland, Shetland and commercially dyed sustainable Botany Lap fibres or - https://www.frankherringandsons.com a fabulous selection of all things to do with spinning and a visit to their shop in Dorchester is recommended!
And likewise https://wessexwoolcraft.co.uk/ are another source of amazing fibre!
So – fibre at the ready, here we go, let the creating commence!
