This class is fast and fun class that opens up a new world to many spinners. Hemp is a strong bast fiber (coming from the stem of a plant) and a cellulose fiber which means it has to be treated and spun differently than protein fibers.
This class explores hemp with a couple different methods of spinning this fascinating fiber into usable yarns. We’ll talk about dyeing bast fibers as well as how to finish and store them.
Materials Fee: $20
Level: you must know how to spin a yarn and use your wheel
