Spindle Plying






As you can see I began by placing the two filled spindles in separate bags.
Then I wrapped both of the singles onto the felted ball.
When the spindles were emptied,I plyed the parallel singles by giving the spindle a spin in the opposite direction just as you do when plying on a wheel.
When the plying was finished, I wound it on the niddy noddy.
