Half Day class
Your everyday spin is the yarn you make without thinking about it, your preferred prep and draft, resulting in your favorite yarn. It’s the yarn equivalent of your favorite jammies.
Some people call this spin a rut, but it’s actually the key to spinning any yarn you want to spin.
In this class we’re going to examine your go-to yarn in detail from fiber, wheel set-up, prep, draft, ply, size, to finish.
Once you know all of the details that go into building your favorite yarn, you’ll be ready to tackle almost any yarn for any project.
Through detailed examination we’ll see how each aspect of spinning affects yarn, and in the end your project. We’ll learn how to make choices and shift techniques to consistently create the yarns that pair perfectly with the projects you have in mind.
Any yarn is within your reach, once you know all about your everyday yarn.
Materials fee: $20
Skill Level: If you are familiar with your wheel, can spin a continuous thread, and have plied a yarn, this class is for you.
