I just had to pop in here tonight to share my excitement with you!
My dear friend Dana, has a friend called Linda who is moving down to the coast, she was giving away a few items and one of them was a Charkha for spinning. The Charkha is one of the oldest spinning tools and was also used often around the time of Ghandi, if you would like to read more about it’s history go here. Dana asked me if I was interested in having it and I said yes! This one is actually from India, I have seen them before, but I have no idea how to use one. Some wonderful new learning will be taking place here this week, that’s for sure. Have you ever spun on one of these? If you have please could you give me a few tips:)
Not only did she send me this lovely spinning tool, but she also sent me a whole bag of beautiful, soft roving! How very generous, I am incredibly grateful!
Hope you have had a lovely weekend.
