Do you long for more consistency in your yarns? This class will help you get there. We’ll start with an introduction to measuring wraps per inch (WPI), angle of twist and grist to take control of your spinning for more consistent results. You’ll learn how to measure wraps per inch for singles and plied yarns; the relationship between WPI of singles and plied yarn; how to measure the angle of twist and the effect of twist on finished yarns. We will also dive into planning a handspun project, fiber choice, combining fibers and how to manage singles and plying for more consistent finished yarns. We will discuss grist and its application for yarn substitution and project planning. You’ll leave this class with a deeper understanding or spinning and more consistent yarn!
