Fractal spinning can result in a subtle self-striping yarn. It is one of the many ways to control color and create dynamic yarn from a dyed roving or fiber braid for knitting, crocheting, and weaving.
To start, we’ll look at two really easy, yet different approaches to fractals—a basic 2-ply as well as a 3-ply using commercial top. Each spinner will have the choice of either method to spin during this session. In addition, we’ll discuss various types of fractal yarns that can be made based on the way fibers are dyed. Finally, we’ll examine several knitted and crocheted samples of 2-ply and 3-ply fractal yarn and discuss more applications.
Materials fee: $12
