Are you in a Spinning rut?? Do you spin the same way with any fiber you are spinning? How fast are your feet going on that wheel?? These are all common situations that spinners get into so we will explore how to make a few changes that will help you spin softer, loftier yarns. Many times spinners are so busy learning about controlling the spinning wheel that they make yarn that is very over-spun and feels harsh. In this class we will spin and ply our yarns so that they have a much softer and loftier hand but still have strength and integrity. We will be spinning a variety of beautiful fibers using this new technique. This is an intermediate class. Spinners must be able to operate their wheel and spin comfortably on it.
A spinning wheel, extra bobbins, lazy kate, ball winder, niddy noddy, any spinning tools that you usually use.
All spinning fibers will be included.
If you don’t have a spinning wheel and supplies please let us know. There will be some wheels available for rent.
