"This is exactly what I needed to get started. You really need to WATCH someone do this before you tackle this skill. I feel confident now that I won't gore myself and can produce some finely prepared fiber for true worsted spinning. If you have been wanting to try this, this is what you need to get started. Video is well-produced with good close-ups and excellent detail." — Catherine D.
