Lately, we have discussed at the thread Respinning commercial yarn for backstrap already over handspun . As always, the thread is already so long that I do want to put more questions on hand spinning for Backstrap at this new thread.
i started yesterday with spinning Llamawool.
I tried to spin very hard. now I´m not sure about what to do next.
I`ve read in one book about the weaving traditions of highland bolivia, that there were three steps in producing yarn for backstrap:
1. Spinning a strong single ,
2. Make a Two- Ply yarn,
and 3. after dying give the yarn a third spinning to produce a crepe twist, a spin so tight, that the yarn when it is not under tension twists back on itself.
I want to trie this, but I will try to weave with singles too.
What do you think?
