- The bobbin sits on an axle between the flyer arms.
- The fiber you will be spinning is attached to the bobbin via a leader yarn that is threaded out through the orifice of the flyer.
- When the flyer spins (because you are treadling), it imparts twist to the fiber between you and the orifice.
- The pull on the fiber that you feel is called “take up”, and is a function of the difference in speeds of the bobbin and flyer.
- When you permit the fiber to move towards the orifice, it begins to wind on the bobbin.
