Skill level: Advanced beginning to Intermediate spinning skills
Workshop Description: In this workshop, we will practice making gently textured yarns by manipulating the way we ply singles together. We will spin snarl yarns, caged yarns, knot yarns, and spiral yarns. These are all yarns that can be created with “ordinary” Z-spun singles. Along the way, we will discuss how to create a smooth, balanced two-ply yarn.
Students should bring: Spinning wheel in good working order, 2 bobbins filled with Z-spun singles (they should be about the same thickness and twist, but of different colors) plus 2 empty bobbins, a lazy kate.
Material Fee: $20 Samples for examination, fibers for spinning, notebook with handouts, sundry supplies
