Worsted Spinning

I have spent so much time spinning cotton or woolen long draw that I almost forgot how to spin a short, forward draw for worsted spinning. This dyed Targhee top really requires a worsted spin and thought I would also try my hand at a short video on the process. I will set the camera up on the tripod and get a better shot from a higher angle at a later date, but for now, this will do.

I like to spin fine singles for lace weight and fingering weight yarn and my fingers just naturally want to draft out the fiber as finely as I can. Old habits are hard to break...
