Spinning. Spindle and foreign friend "Drop Spindle"

Spinning. Spindle and foreign friend "Drop Spindle"

“Three girls under the window were spinning late in the evening."No wonder the article I started with this quote. ? I think that almost everyone at home or in the country at least once met such a wonderful invention, like a spindle. Having twisted this truly amazing thing in our hands, we most often put a tick somewhere in our own subconscious: “We need to get on the Internet, see how they spin with the help of this thing” and this time the spindle returns to the best of times! I am not an exception, there is a real spindle at home, but looking at the drawings on it and considering how you can get a beautiful thread with the help of this “stick”, I didn’t go. Until today, did not go! ? Let's look at this artful art together today and consider what spinning is. Spinning wool is essentially twisting the thread to a certain thickness and strength. I tried to spin the thread by hand - without a spindle and other devices, just twisting the hairs. Occupation fascinating, but for a long time I did not have enough. I wiped off my fingers, spent a lot of time, I got a very short piece of thread, and even now I don’t remember what I did with it. ? This is taking into account the fact that I sometimes lash out of wool and my hands are used to it! After wandering once again across the expanses of the world, I discovered the following. Spinning is possible with the help of: 1. spindle; 2. a foreign friend of the spindle - Drop Spindle, which in translation is a suspended spindle or is it also called the Drop Spindle? 3. mechanical spinning wheel; 4. electric spinning wheel. We will learn about the last two next time, but with the first two I want to introduce you today. VERTICAL (support spindle) This is the very spindle that we know from childhood from fairy tales, cartoons. This is something that exists in almost every home and which we now no longer know how to use. The spindle is a rodpointed on the one hand, weighted on the other and having a narrowing. Tapering is used to secure the thread. The main difference of the Russian spindle is that it is put on a support. The support may be a special stand or a glass plate without bulges and irregularities. You can check whether the support fits and you can spin with it as follows: place the spindle on the plate with a thick end, hold the top with your right hand with your middle and thumb, then you need to sharply rotate the spindle along the thumb and close the index the ring, the spindle must itself quietly rotate in this ring. The stopping spindle is picked up with two fingers, so that it does not fall down. Manual spinning using the support spindle is that the thread is fixed on the recess. Often, for this purpose, a small segment of the already spun yarn is used, it is tied on a recess, and a tow (non-spun fiber) is fastened to the tail. After that, you can choose one of the following methods: wind the thread along the entire length of the spindle or make a locking loop at the end. Begin to rotate the spindle gradually pulling the tow. As the thread is twisted, it is wound onto a spindle. Spinning is possible both from a homogeneous fiber, and using a base. Looking for a video using the reference spindle, there were only video clips of Alice! ? Strangely enough helped search using the English language. The video is foreign, but everything is clear from it. SUSPENDED VERETENO (DROP SPINDEL) And now we will get acquainted with a foreign brother - a suspended spindle. Suspended spindle and support spindle differon the structure and spinning system. The Drop Spindle has a hook for fixing the thread and a weighted disc. There are upper and lower hanging spindles, it depends on the location of the hook. The thread is fixed on the base from the most part, after which it is fixed on the hook and begin to rotate, releasing the spindle "into flight". ? Suspended spindles vary in thickness, length and severity. For example, there are such sets. I found the video again and it’s English again, butthe girl shows in great detail: I already have the desire to try. Be sure how to get home, find the spindle and try! ? After reading and reviewing this amount of information about the spindle, the idea itself about the usefulness of spinning arises. As a loving mom, I take care of the development of my child. Any modern developmental center is aimed at fine motor skills and coordination, which we often do at home: play with cereals, draw fingers and hands, roll, try to embroider, rewind balls. I think later, when we are a little older, we will begin to master and spindle. Indeed, in spinning, coordination develops, which involves both the right and left hemispheres, work with both hands at once, and tactile sensations, all fingers work. I think the spindle will be useful not only for children, but also for adults with certain types of diseases. All the same, everything new is well forgotten old! ? And you know that you can not only buy a spindle, but also make it yourself! ? About this in the following articles! Appeal to the masters! If you have the opportunity and desire to record a Russian-language video with a detailed guide of actions for those interested in spinning, I will be grateful to you and with great pleasure will post your video on this site!

  • Olga: The article is very interesting, and the video is detailed, but with the probability of finding a spindle in each house, let me disagree. I was interested in spinning when I was a little girl, but closer than in a museum, I never saw a spindle. I am sure that many will agree with me: in our tenure, the spindle is a curious, but rare artifact, especially for those who grew up and spent their whole lives in the city. I would very much like to hold it once in my hands, not a purchased one, but a real old spindle. Alas, for the rest of my life it’s not too long, I never managed to do that.
  • : Hello Olga! An interesting observation! Is there really no friends who would have had a spindle! And where do you live, in what city! I am a man of the city and from the cradle I was brought and I lived in the city. Mom from a young age also lived in the city, her mom, too, but her mother’s grandmother still lived in the regional village of the Moscow region. In my house there were as many as three spindles, one of which was even handmade. And these spindles are great-grandmothers. It is possible that someone had spindles in your family, but they were thrown away as useless!
  • Olga: Hello, Elena. I and all my relatives are city dwellers, Kharkiv and Chernihiv. I had no one in the village or even in the old town houses. There were no close friends in the village either. When I was a small child, my family had a dacha near the village, but we didn’t have a particularly strong friendship with the villagers. Then they sold the dacha, and any connection with any rural area was broken. Therefore, it is not surprising that I have never seen a real spindle, only a spinning wheel once in a museum. In the family, maybe someone had a spindle, rather, along the line of the father, since the native mothers came from a pre-revolutionary, very well-known Pan family, but neither I nor my relatives had ever encountered any spindles or spinning wheels, although all women in my family was very fond of needlework, unlike most of my friends and acquaintances. So yes, it is possible that some people are not something that they have never seen spindles in their life, but they are familiar with rural life only by hearsay, and my family is a vivid example.

  • Mila_8854: Thank you for the article on time. Son and a dog have a lot of wool and combed it, as if they themselves would do it, there is an electric hoist, but somehow it’s impossible to learn. Thanks again. A lot of interesting and instructive.
  • Margarita54: Hello Elena!Indeed, it is rarely possible to meet a woman who can spin. I taught this in the 70s to the hostess, where we rented a room with students. Once I did it with pleasure, I didn’t lose my skills now. wool and happy to spin. The manual spinning wheel has been preserved from the nanny, probably more than a hundred years old. I want to say that not every spindle can be spun. What is now sold in stores is purely decorative, they cannot be used in work. a small thickening on the tip, not lacquered in any case - otherwise the thread will slide.
  • : Hello, Margarita! Very interesting! I went to write to you in the mail! ?
