Once you have mastered beginning spinning, and maybe before
you buy a wheel, you might want to try different types of fiber. (detailed description) In Spinning Different Fiber Samples, you
will try Shetland, Corriedale, Merino, Lincoln Longwool, Teeswater, Jacob,
Llama, Alpaca, Suri and Huycaya, Cotton, Silk, (brick, top, hankie) Bamboo,
Angora Rabbit, and others that Julie adds to your take home shoe box to start
you on your ‘study’ of fibers. Spinning of the fold, forward and backward
drafting, supported long draw and unsupported long draw will be demonstrated for students to try with
different types of fiber.
Double Treadle Lendrum Wheels will be used in class. Julie will supply all fiber and wheels.
Prerequisite: knowledge of how to spin.
