Drop spindle #4: Making a skein and setting the twist

This is video #4 in a series of four videos on how to spin with a drop spindle. In this video, I show you how to make a skein with your plied yarn, and we discuss how to ‘set the twist’ in the yarn and why that’s important. There are also resources for further learning about spinning with a drop spindle.
