(130) Tweed: Blend and Spin
Get involved in another part of the spinning process by blending your own Tweed batt! We will begin this workshop by introducing students to the drum carder by blending a batt to their optimal speckled preference and what materials work best to achieve a tweed effect. Students will then experiment with different gauges and plies to achieve their desired tweed result in their handspun yarn that can be archived in a provided sample book.Workshop #: 130
