These are dreamy! I'm considering the course, as after all my attempts were massively over spun, my wheel has been gathering dust! Fab yarns at your end, though! x

Hi! I'm considering this course and wanted to ask you a question! I have tons of unused lace weight cashmere yarn, and I'm wondering if I could spin worsted weight yarn from them. Is it something I can do with a wheel??

I've spun with a drop spindle but never used a wheel.

You could ply yarns together on a wheel or on a spindle. Either would work. That type of yarn modification isn't discussed in the video but it is pretty comprehensive for every other type of yarn.

Thank you for your response! I'll definitely purchase your course to learn more! Did you discuss types of wheels that are good for beginners to purchase? I've done a little research on wheels and am so confused now that there are so many different types!

Yes we talk about wheels in one of the lessons.
