Winding "Properly"


Finally took some time to take some sample fiber and practice winding onto a Turkish spindle neatly.  I well understood how to do it from looking it up, but never really did it - I would just wind on haphazardly and it looks very messy when the singles are not all lined up.  Plus, I'm pretty sure you can wind more on if its done neatly and I think its easier to gauge the diameter of the singles and be consistent when they are all lined up neatly on the cop.

Well done!

The way it is wrapped it reminds me of one of those "Eye of God" things you can buy in Mexico.
