Abby Franquemont Spinning Wheels

She published the hand spinning instruction book, Respect the Spindle, as fiber arts educator, in 2009 . In the book she outlines her personal experience of the place of hand spinning within the indigenous community of Chinchero in the 1970s, discusses the physics of hand spinning with spindles, and describes in detail and at depth the techniques required for this.

As her father said, in comparison with the spinning wheel “spindles (are) slower by the hour, but faster by the week, that’s why she has supported the revival of the use of hand spindles . To her, he meant that you can use a spindle while travelling or walking around, thus increasing your potential spinning time.

She clarifies the difference between bobbin-driven and flyer-driven spinning wheels, in the spring 2010 issue of Spin-Off magazine . She discusses the origins of Andean plying, in the summer 2015 edition .
