Do you want to learn to spin? This workshop is an introduction to the marvelous craft of spinning yarn on a spinning wheel. We will cover the parts of the spinning wheel and the basics of how it works. In the process of spinning “singles” from wool, we will practice how to draft fibers and how twist turns fiber into yarn. We will also practice plying singles together for a 2-ply yarn. We will discuss the basics of preparing fleece for spinning, care of your wheel, and finishing yarns. Participants will leave with a completed skein of their own handspun yarn.
