Workshop Description: Wool and mohair locks can be used “as is” or prepared in a variety of ways for spinning both highly textured yarns and very smooth yarns. In this workshop, we will cover a wide array of lock structures, from fine crimp to bold curls. We will play with undyed and dyed locks, we will spin yarns from the locks, we will combine locks with roving in a variety of ways, and we will flick locks for spinning smooth, worsted-type yarns.
Participants should bring: a spinning wheel in good working order, 3 bobbins, lazy kate, flick carder or dog/cat slicker brush or dog “rake”.
