Ready to add some excitement to your spinning skills? You’ve mastered the basic two-ply yarn. Now it’s time to jazz up your weaving and knitting. In this intermediate class, we will learn to create crepe, cabled and coiled yarns and see how these techniques can be used together to bring texture into your yarn. Students should bring a spinning wheel in good working order with at least three bobbins. Homework: Pre-spin 1/2 or so ounces of singles before the class, don’t worry about what they look like, just make your favorite or default yarn.
