Distaff spinning experiment
A spinning experiment wherein we attempt to determine the production rate achievable using distaff spinning.

What you need to do is spin for as long as you have time for (not counting breaks, fibre prep, etc. and making it focused spinning rather than working around chores or similar). Then, measure how many metres of yarn you've produced. The longer you can spin for, the more accurate the count will be, so if you can spin for a full hour or more please do.
