Ever wanted to spin your own yarn?

- Spinning basics: drafting, adding twist and winding on

- Spinning methods and their uses: worsted, woolen and in between

- Fiber basics: fiber types, characteristics and uses

- Plying: combining your single strands for a strong, stable and balanced yarn

You will also receive a handout full of valuable resources about spinning and other textile information.
