Navajo spinning video

I just ran across this great video on the riverrim blog - riverrim.blogspot.com/2010/03/clara.html

It shows a master weaver carding, using a Navajo spindle with a double draft technique the second portion of which looks a lot like English longdraw and a nice splicing technique for adding yarn on a spindle to a preexisting skein. Really wonderful.

Oh, good. I'm glad you saw this. I was thinking of you when I posted, but didn't have quite enough time to send you a message directly.

What a lovely movie... it's calming just to watch Clara's hands magically create a beautiful yarn.  Is there another video about her Navajo Rug weaving.  I wanted to see more at the end!

Thanks so much!
