This fun class will give you the tools and know how to create out of this world batts, roving and rolags. You will learn how to make pastels and other colors by blending fibers on the carders (everyone will have their own carder in class). A hackle and even wool combs will be used to give some “oomph” to your finished batts. Learn multi-blended techniques that will give your finished yarn depth and life. I will show you how the thickness of your layered colors can affect your spun yarn and how to apply add-ins like firestar, silk, wool nepps, angelina and locks. Don’t really know what the best way is to spin a given fiber prep? We will study the different ways to spin and draft that showcase your fiber prep the best. Please join me on this fun fiber journey.
