WIP Wednesday – Swooning over Support Spindling

Well, it is safe to say that I’ve fallen head-over-heels for support spindle spinning. It took me a little bit to catch on to this method of spinning but now that I’ve got it, I’m really enjoying it.

I enjoy the slower pace and intentionality to spinning in this manner. I find I get to savour the process and enjoy my spinning fibre even more. It is quiet, peaceful, and meditative. I look forward to spinning on my support spindle a little bit each day. Some days I spend an hour and others I spend only five minutes. It is a little crafty treat that I look forward to each day.

Do you have any crafts like that? What processes or crafts do you find meditative? I’d love to hear.

  1. Mmm, I agree with you: Falling in love with handspinning is easy. Beginning spinning with spindles became my first rabbit hole, and now (four, or five?, wheels later) I realize how much I prefer and appreciate handspinning with spindles on a different level than even my beloved CPW.

    If I had to choose, my spindles would be my preference. The rhythm and intentionality resonate with my soul in a way which helps combat the crazy, hectic world we live in.

    The ability to choose structure and manipulate the fiber is also more precise and intentional for me than on a wheel. Savouring it is especially meditative in a slow way which is delightful. Spindle spinning really brings out the calm, reflective moments in the day, too 🙂
