Refining Your Skills, Tips and Techniques for Expanding Your Spinning

October 20, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

Instructors: Mimi Luebbermann & Marlie deSwart


This class is for spinners wanting to improve their spinning skills and to learn how to expand the range of yarns they are able to create. Everyone brings their spun singles for show and tell, and we start by introducing the spinning methods used to create woolen or worsted yarns and explain the different uses for these yarns. The class will try out different fibers and the best methods to spin them. We will also talk about breeds of sheep and their fleeces, how to process wool from the fleece by washing and carding wool. Finally, we practice plying two, three, and four different threads for finished plied yarns.
