This is a unique design of mine for holding your fiber out of harm's way while spinning it into yarn. When I first learned to spin, the fiber kept getting caught up in the spun singles, which is a MESS! I wanted some way to hold the fiber up and out of the way, so I designed this two-pocket wrist distaff and it does the trick! There is one ribbed pocket that your wrist goes into and below that is the pocket for the fiber. My first prototype just had ONE pocket and in the summer, my wrist would sweat and dampen the fiber, causing it to stick to me and sometimes even begin to felt. I played with the design until I was satisfied with it's ability to hold the fiber, while keeping it away from my skin.
THIS IS FOR THE PATTERN of the CROCHETED version, ONLY. I have a 'half and half' version which has a knitted wrist cuff and crocheted fiber pocket and a completely KNITTED version available in my listings
Thank you very much for the wonderful pattern!

I am always nervous about buying patterns as I fear they will end up too complicated and I will end up not using them. That is not the case with this pattern! Mary includes a picture tutorial and chart to help visualize the written instructions.
