Did the person interviewing Amy Clarke Moore as what fiber and how it was prepared that she was spinning? If someone is spinning roving or completely prepared fiber it's gonna spin up faster than spinning from the locks, spinning raw wool or doing soft fiber from baby angora rabbits. (Adult angora fiber spins much faster.) There's even a huge difference between spinning different breeds of sheep so how can she make a broad statement like that? There should be more information such as spinning roving is faster than knitting.
