In this class you will learn how to turn fiber into yarn as well as yarn construction, plying, making a skein, and setting the twist with your very own hand-spun goods.
The class fee covers a drop spindle and hand dyed fiber for you to experiment with. You will also go over the history of spinning and different materials you can make into hand-spun yarn. Samples of items you can knit or crochet with your hand-spun yarn will be shown and will spark your creativity! The possibilities are endless when it comes to spinning your own fiber.
