Fully Operational

The Charkha is ready and I've been learning to spin cotton on it. I thought I'd share the process in a little video.  I filmed it myself using a tripod, hence the lack of zoom and zip. If you'd like a better video at some point where you can actually SEE the process, just let me know. I'll see what I can do.  Even without good closeups and contrast the video gives you a vague idea of how a charkha works...... or at least how a charkha works in the hands of someone who has spun on it for a whole hour......

Thanks for watching!!

  1. Very cool! And I don't think I've ever heard your voice - you sound very Canadian. :)
