I love texture and try to incorporate it in all of my spinning from subtle to wild. My feeling about fiber is that its natural texture should be celebrated, whether as an accent or a focal point. Using various types of textural batts, we will dispel the myth that texture must be bulky, explore color effects within a batt, learn several ways to prepare a batt for the spinning process, experiment with corespinning vs a plied yarn for desired results, practice our semi woolen spinning, and even see how we can plan for a project and stretch our materials by combining textural batts with combed top or roving. Whether you are looking for a way to move outside of your comfort zone, understand the anatomy of a batt, or finally pull that batt from your stash to your wheel that was, “too pretty to spin,” this workshop is for you!
Materials Fee: $30
Level: Beginner plus, should be comfortable with spinning
