Described by some as a faster method of spinning, long draw spinning produces woolen yarns that can be soft and lofty, or firmer and more tightly twisted. We’ll discuss fiber prep and type, uses for the yarn, and wheel set-up. There will be a great (walking) wheel available for participants to try in addition to using their own wheels.
Students should bring: A spinning wheel in good working order – If you have a Woolee Winder, please bring a standard flyer as well; at least 3-4 bobbins; hand cards; lazy kate
