Skill needed: ability to spin a steady single and basic plying. This class is geared to wheel spinners, though spindlers may be able to do the methods as well with a little park-and-ply action on the two-handed parts.
You need to bring: wheel, 3 (THREE!) empty bobbins, lazy kate, niddy-noddy, ball winder or nostepinne (if you have one), scissors, pencil/pen, notecards to save samples on; contact me if you need me to bring extras.
Also, bring yarns you want to dissect or copy, and fibers you want advice on.
- Wraps Per Inch singles -> plied (review)
- Cable 4-ply
- Navajo 3-ply (aka chain ply)
- Thread and commercial eyelash yarn plying
- Novelty methods for color play: coil, ch'oro/snarl, knop/beehive
We had alot of fun in my Creative Spinning series with this session last time. The yarn on our bobbins by the end of class was some seriously crazy stuff!
