I'm spinning flax strick from my sitting distaff - to linen on the Canadian Production Wheel. (the distaff is rigged up to keep the swivel post stationary)
My husband shot the video, and when I looked at it, the line seems to be invisible, so I added a close up shot of the draft at the end...using the tripod. It was difficult to get a good "over my shoulder" shot.
The question was "Anyone here have experience successfully spinning flax on their CPW?"
and...so now my question is: "How often were CPW's actually used for spinning flax?"
I imagine they were mostly used for spinning wool...but apparently...some of them have a hole on the table for a distaff..and a distaff certainly could have held wool, but maybe some flax from time to time.
