Who was it that said “the past is an undiscovered country”? Well, at any rate we can’t go back to the 15th century and learn just how they spun. There may not even have been one definitive method. Methods change from place to place and over time. Also different fibres may be spun differently or method may change depending on the thread the spinner wanted to produce. Not to mention each spinner will have those slight idiosyncracies that make their technique unique only to them. So this will always be how I spin when I’m trying to reproduce spinning 15th century style. With that said, follow the links below for the instructions!
