I’m spinning cotton on my Bosworth Charkha spinning wheel for the first time since I moved to Santa Fe almost a year ago. I plan to weave with the singles yarn for my next floor loom project. The yarn has a grist roughly similar to 20/2 cotton.
Pablo loves hanging out with me when I spin yarn. He especially loves charkha spinning, probably because I am sitting on the ground, but maybe also because the high drive ratio of the spinning wheel (80:1) is interesting to him.
