You have been spinning for a while but always seem to spin the same type of yarn. Learn how to spin yarn in a variety of sizes for projects youíve dreamed of making from handspun yarn. Through a series of exercises, you will practice spinning consistent yarns in fine, medium, and thick sizes. You will learn how grist, thickness, and twist have an impact on the yarn you spin and how to measure for these important characteristics. We will cover the tricks to spinning yarn of consistent size. We will discuss the effect of different fibers on yarn construction and end use.
There will be no formal lunch break, but you're welcome to bring a mid-morning snack and/or beverage.
