You will also learn how to do a long draw, an essential technique in spinning cotton. Students will examine many varieties of cotton and will learn how to properly prepare these short stapled fibers. In addition we will explore specialty wheels such as the great wheel and charka and how they differ from our commonly used spinning wheels.
