Juro--- Re spinning and compressing deer hair, clump or prepared hair laid on hook shank, at an angle off horizontal. 3 light turns arround the bundle, increase tension on bundle andrelease slowly, hair spins , move thread to front of spun bundle, compress to position, 4or 5 wraps in front and repeat procedure compressing with fingers. If you wrap through the sections you may fet the bundles too tight and they will not compress any further. Trim and shape from here
