Beginning Spinning at the Wheel
Tracks: Beginner, Knitting, Projects
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the craft of creating yarn with a spinning wheel. We will spin "singles" from wool rovings, and then create a 2-ply yarn from those singles. We will touch on washing fleeces, carding and combing, care of your wheel, and finishing yarns.
Supplies: Participants will need to bring a spinning wheel that works, with at least one bobbin.
Additional Fees for materials: $15 (includes samples for examination, fibers for spinning, notebook with handouts)
Homework: None.TCSLINKTOLINKSMore Info
