Thick and Thin Art Yarn
When we first start spinning we make thick and thin yarn with little effort. After a while our spinning evens out. Now, for the life of us, we struggle to make yarn that is deliberately uneven. Join me in this class to learn one of the fundamental skills in making art yarn: making slubs and intentionally spinning thick and thin. In a mere half-day workshop, you will learn how to and actually spin two bobbins full of thick and thin singles; ply them and finish the yarn. Participants in the class will also receive a pattern to knit a cozy cowl with this fun skein
Required Skills: Must have some fundamental spinning skills on a wheel and/or spindle. While this technique can be done on a spindle, you may not be able to complete the entire exercise in four hours.
