In this class, participants will untangle the mystery of Spinning prepared fiber into yarn. The importance of staple length and proper drafting will be emphasized. Wool, Alpaca and Llama fiber will be used to learn how to spin “singles” and then to ply those into a two ply yarn. Achieving proper twist in both singles and plied yarn will be explored. Students will learn to use hand-spindles and Spinning Wheels in this class. We will also discuss setting twist and proper yarn washing techniques. Hand-spindles will be provided. If students have properly working spinning wheels, please bring them.
A working spinning wheel if you own one.
All spinning fibers will be included.
If you don’t have a spinning wheel and supplies please let us know. Hand Spindles will be provided.
