Workshop Description: In this workshop you will learn two techniques, how to core spin and chain ply. The chain ply (also known as Navaho ply) is a way to make three-ply yarn from a single strand. Learn to chain ply using your spinning wheel or drop spindle. ( 45 Snyder spindle preferred). What a great way to make round yarn that easily slips through your fingers as you knit. Core spinning begins with a source yarn, around which fibers like locks or silk are spun. This is an art yarn that is fun to make and fun to use! Questions? Call Susan’s Fiber Shop (608)575-1470
