Plying is an art, just like drafting a beautiful single. It is the basis of most novelty yarns as well as lovely classic yarns like a 5ply gainsay. In this seminar we’ll learn not only how to ply but why to ply. We’ll learn how to choose the best type of ply for the fabric you’re designing whether it is knit or woven. We’ll make a variety of plys – everything from a two ply to a six ply, plus several novelty plies. You’ll learn lots of tips and tricks plus ways to make your own equipment to help you ply successfully.
