Spinning, The Next Step
Have you ever wanted to take your spinning to the next level? Do you feel that your drafting technique produces only one type of yarn? Come learn several different drafting techniques that will take your spinning up a notch. Learn the difference between woolen and worsted spun yarns, learn how to make these yarns and most importantly, learn the techniques to create your own delightful yarns for the projects you want to create. You will learn to spin longfibers such as silk and longwools, as well as how to spin very short staple fibers like camel and yak. Bring your wheel, if you have one, or you may use one of the wheels in the shop. We will supply some fibers for you to use in the class, but there is plenty more of any you must have available for purchase.
