Exploring Fiber Preparations for Hand Spinners
In this class we will examine commercial preparations available to us and how they can be spun. Then after learning how to use hand carders we will prepare fibers in a number of different ways from both raw washed fleece and commercial combed tops.
Finishing with colour blending in the different preparations we have learned. With a drop spindle we will make test sample along the way.
There will be enough fiber supplied so you can at home practice spinning with what you have made.
