Description

At one point in our careers every spinner finds themselves in a rut. We spin one weight of yarn really well, but struggle to spin finer or thicker. You really can do it! In this class we’ll learn how to set ourselves up for successfully spinning the diameter we choose, not just the one we know. We’ll talk about how to go thinner, thicker and we’ll even talk about how to spin a consistent and stable thick and thin yarn. Students should bring:
Spinning wheel. Niddy Noddy, extra bobbins and lazy kate is recommended.
