FedEx just brought me my copy of my first instructional DVD! Drafting: The Long And Short Of It, from Interweave Press and sponsored by Louet North America, is an advanced beginner to intermediate level workshop in DVD form. One hour long, we get into the meaty topic of how to fine-tune your yarn to get the exact results you want.
Looking for a lofty, fluffy yarn? Learn to spin carded fibers with long draw. Looking for smooth and drapy? The worsted-style short forward draw is your answer. Do you have a challenging fiber, or are you after results in between, such as a drapy yarn that’s fuzzy? The answers are here. But it’s not all deadly serious: we make sure to have fun.
