How Can I Spin it, What Can I Make-
Using Hand Cards, Drum Carder and a Hair Comb!
Curious continuing spinners, gain inspiration and skill at making the yarn you have in mind from the fiber raised and grown in your own backyard. What gives a yarn personality? Prepare (carding, drum carding, combing or not at all!) and spin lovely natural sheep shades, hand dyed locks of wool or work with the lovely solid top and space dyed rovings that you have brought from home! Make a custom blend of alpaca, angora, wool and/or mohair to design your own "local cloth". Start beyond the basics to delve into production techniques from color inspirations. Touch on spinning methods, wheel set ups, plying ideas and lessons in consistency.
Materials fee: $20 for Wool, washed, and in several sheepy colors/textures and vegetable dyed solid and rainbow experiments, some angora goat and rabbit hair, several pairs of hand cards, drum carder, card stock/tape, a drum carder
