(300) Creating the Yarn You Want
This workshop is designed for the spinner who wants to gain greater control over the final characteristics of the yarn she or he spins. We will practice methods for controlling the thickness and twist of yarns. We will cover practical techniques for creating yarns that are consistent from bobbin to bobbin, and that match already existing yarns, either hand spun or commercial. We will also touch on techniques for plying a “balanced yarn”.
