Kicking it up a notch: Spinning for end use
Can you spin already, but want to take your spinning to another level? Do you find that your handspun yarn isn't quite right for your projects? Would you like to learn how to choose and spin fibres with an end use in mind?
Julia will guide you toward producing just the right yarn for whatever you want to make. You will learn to prepare the fibre appropriately, spin singles using a suitable technique, and ply to give a balanced yarn. Selecting the best fibre for a project, and finishing it properly, will also be discussed.
For this class you will need to bring a spinning wheel in good working order. If you can bring handcarders, a lazy kate, and a niddy-noddy, they will be useful too.
Price: $65 Please bring your wheel in good working order and your own roving/fibre.
