Master spinner Judith MacKenzie opens her chamber of wonders to show her prized collection of antique spindle whorls. In exploring these ancient (and some not so ancient) treasures, she explores the history of yarn making from early days to the present. From spinning a plied yarn with a quick roll up the thigh to creating an exquisite center-pull ball with a Turkish spindle, Judith demonstrates how this simple tool has shaped human history.
