In this evening workshop, you will learn how to card/blend fibres and colours on your own spindle. (this is a follow up to Spinning on a Spindle part one)
The focus is on learning to ply and make a skein of yarn to use in a project such as a hat or headband. Washing and setting the skein is important to understand before using handspun yarns for knitting, weaving or crocheting.
Throughout the session, both a contemporary and antique spinning wheel will be available to use. All fibre supplies will be provided. Bring your own spindle. Hand made turned wooden spindles will be available for purchase.
