Reader Test: Spinning Fabric Twine on a Spinning Wheel


Remember last week’s post about making your own awesome scrap fabric twine? Well, after I shared it on Facebook, CRAFT reader M. K. Lawrie wondered what the results would be if, instead of plying the twine by hand, she took it for a turn on her spinning wheel instead. She put several methods to the test, trying out multiple fabric joins and various combinations of hand plying and machine spinning, and posted her results here.

Thanks for sharing, M. K. Lawrie!
