Useful Spinning Things

As my spinning has progressed I’ve had a few ideas along the way, and put together some bits and pieces that made my life easier.

The first one I thought I’d add here was a chart that converts niddy noddy wraps to yards – my niddy noddy is made by Ashford and one wrap equals five feet.  The maths is easy enough, but I found that I wanted to know RIGHT NOW how long my yarn was!  At the time I put this together I was taking part in a ‘how much 2-ply yarn can you get from 100g’ project, with a target of 800 yards, so I optimistically took the chart to around that length.  I don’t think I ever got past 500 yards, but it’s there in case you need it.

  4. What was the length of the shaft of your noddy noddy? – that would seriously affect the yardage you get.
