Do you want to spin fine yarn?

Do you want to spin fine yarn?

Trying to spin ridiculously fine yarn? This is the class for you. We’ll work with fine fibers to produce the finest yarn we possibly can with wheels and / or spindles and / or e-spinners – your choice of tool! What do we mean by fine? We’re talking thread; singles you can barely see and plied yarns you’d knit with needles you’ll have to special order and worry about bending, that you’d crochet with hooks you can barely tell are actually hooks, or weave at upwards of 100 ends per inch. We’re talking about yarn you don’t want to measure in wraps per inch because it’s too hard to count that many. Seriously, even if you aren’t trying to go quite that fine, if you’re just trying to spin finer than you presently do, or if spinning fine seems to have weird bottlenecks you can’t figure out, this class is what you’ve been looking for. You should bring your favourite equipment for spinning fine – wheel, spindle, e-spinner, all of the above, it’s up to you. I’ll carefully select and supply the fiber you need to be successful, and help you identify great fibers like that moving forward.

Spindle Long Draw

Spin long draw comfortably, like I did with this cotton yarn!

Are you comfortable with your spindles, but can’t seem to get long draw to work? Get hands-on help and an overview of several long draw options you can use with spindles of any type. Learn to spin long draw supported, suspended, and with hybrid methods and double-drafting. You bring a spindle you like, plus you’ll get one to use in class, and I’ll supply the fiber, which will of course be selected carefully to make sure you can get the most out of this session.
