Four Fine Fibres, Four Fine Yarns
Materials Fee: $45
Learn to spin lace weight and cobweb yarns like a boss, no matter what the fibre! We’ll start with 4 fine fibres- Polwarth, alpaca, silk, cashmere – in 4 preparations. Then we’ll spin them using 4 different drafting methods to make 4 very luxurious fine yarns. We will explore spinning wheel set-up for spinning fine yarns and how to choose the best fibre preparation for the yarn we want. Once our singles are spun, we will look at different ways to ply and finish the yarns to bring out the very best of each fibre’s characteristics.
