Welcome to a site dedicated to the love of spinning.

About

I am a spinner. And a knitter. I am learning how to weave. I dye when I need to. And I share my experiences by blogging, making videos, learning and teaching.

Bio

I have been knitting since the mid -80’s and spinning since 2011. I specialize in the process from raw wool to a finished textile. I also have a deep interest in different kinds of spindles. I run a spinning blog and post spinning videos on my YouTube channel. I teach intermediate spinning in Sweden and online. I also consider myself a student of spinning – every day I learn something new.

Posts, videos and online courses

In the blog I write mostly about spinning, from both a technical and more of a philosophical perspective. Spinning does so much for me and I like to investigate the spinning process in my blog posts.

My youtube videos are both instructional and documentary style videos. I hope you find something you like.

In my online school I offer courses to intermediate and advanced spinners.

Every now and then I write for spinning magazines:

Bulky

What is your default yarn? Mine would be a 2-ply fingering, on rare occasions sport weight yarn. Today I spin way out of my comfort zone. With the slowness of a floor supported Navajo style spindle I do my best to approach a bulky yarn. Snow shoveling pants A while ago I wrote a review …
