It was love at first sight! You bought a fleece–and now what do you do with it? It depends! We will prepare a fine, medium and long wool fleece. We will prepare all three types of fleece and spin them woolen and worsted and then ply accordingly. You will have enough fleece to knit or weave small samples with your yarn, so you can discover the perfect combination of preparation and spinning for your project. We’ll cover wheel maintenance, preparing and spinning woolen yarns, how to spin a consistent yarn, preparing and spinning worsted yarns, plying yarns, and finishing techniques. Grow your spinning skills over this 2 day class as you move beyond just knowing how to spin, learn to prep, plan, and spin with purpose and passion.
Materials Fee: $20
Level: Students should be able to spin a continuous yarn and be comfortable with their wheel.
