Spinners are powerful people — we make yarn. This issue is all about that power, harnessing that power, increasing that power, and enjoying that power.
- Do you want to know how to spin faster and more consistently?
- Do you want to be more mindful about your spinning? Build better spinning habits? Find greater meaning?
- Have you ever wondered how to move from 4-ounce braids to greater lots of fiber for larger projects?
This issue covers power from lots of different angles and one of them is sure to speak to you. There are articles about speed and production but if you’re not concerned about faster yarn making, there’s also pieces on mindfulness, consistency, habits, learning, spinning with chronic illness or pain, and using your wheel. All of these things add to your power as a hand spinner. There’s also interesting experiments on drafting, fiber prep, yarn construction, and resulting yarn longevity. We even have a showdown between yarn and a robot that you won’t want to miss. Of course there are powerful projects too!
Power can mean so many things — spinning quicker, finer, more consistently, or even more mindfully. This issue is all about becoming a more powerful spinner, whatever that means to you.Ply magazine is an indie magazine that looks and feels different than other magazines.
