I'm new to spinning and was wondering about the flyer ratio. From what I can find the higher the number, the thicker the yarn spun. Is that correct? Also does it have anything do do with the type of fiber you are spinning?
Edit: Ok I think I found a better article on ratios. The lower the number the coarser the fiber used as well as the slower the wheel. So a finer fiber, like merino or angora, needs a faster ratio for a higher twist.
