The Art of Spinning Scrap
Do you have half an ounce of dyed silk, a bit of cashmere, perhaps a few handfuls of yak, several lengths of colorful dyed wool top and a sprinkling of colorful kid mohair locks all lurking in the bottom of your spinning basket? If you do (and who doesn’t?) this class was designed for you. It is all about how to make perfectly beautiful yarn out of all the bits and pieces that we fiber junkies just can’t bear to part with. Bring whatever bits of lovelies you have and I’ll bring along a selection of fibers in a wide range of colors and fiber types to extend your collection. Don’t have a scrap stash yet? I’ll have plenty to share and we’ll spin some beautiful yarn together.
Required Skills: Must be able to make a continuous yarn, helpful if you know how to ply. Should have a good working relationship with your wheel.
