Unfortunately I learnt too late that my grandmother had owned and used spinning wheel and loom. I learnt to spin with a spindle during a festival and was immediately fascinated. Then I got to know a breeder of Angora goats who gave me some raw kid mohair. So I learnt to prepare fibres myself. My neighbours have some sheep, I got to know breeders of alpacas and angora rabbits, and some more sheep breeders. I met other spinners in real life and on the internet. My tools evolved from home-made spindles and dog brushes to entry-level spinning wheels and hand cards to good wheels and drum carder.
Now the production and transformation of natural fibres has taken over a good part of my life. I have the big advantage of being fluent in English, German and French, so that I can collect information in a good part of the world. On these pages you will find some of my experience.
If you want to learn more, you'll be pleased to know that I give spinning lessons to individuals and small groups. The fibres are included in the price and you take the yarn you have created home with you.
