Event Details

You can make the yarns of your dreams on the top-whorl spindle, and this four-hour class will give you the experience and confidence to get started. You'll learn how to choose fibers, wash them, blend them (say, wool and silk, bamboo and alpaca) for color and texture by carding and combing, draft, and spin. You'll receive a fine maple spindle as part of your class fee, along with raw fiber to process at home, roving to practice with, and extensive handouts. Jan has taught spindling for years, including at Shepherd's Harvest Festival, and she's eager to help you discover and master the ancient art of creating homespun on the simple, portable spindle.
