Have you ever lusted after lofty, woollen yarns but always been too scared to spin them? Got that short stapled fiber that gives you nightmares? Well, this is the class for you!
The focus of this class is to give you an introduction into woollen spinning. We will look at what makes a yarn woollen and how this varies from a worsted yarn. We will then move into spinning using spinning techniques which incorporate twist into the drafting zone. Through all of this, we will also delve into plying and finishing of your yarns so that you can make the woollen yarns of your dreams!
