Drop Spindle Class

Drop Spindle Class


In this beginner-level class, we’ll get our hands on some clean, unspun wool, discuss its properties, and then use a drop spindle to transform the loose fiber into yar


You’ll learn how to use your hands to spin the spindle and control the twist as it enters the fiber. As we spin, we’ll talk about the beauty of and uses for your first handspun yarn, have a brief plying demonstration, and discuss next steps. If we have time at the end of this 2-hour class, there will be a brief demonstration of spinning on a spinning wheel. You’ll leave this class with basic knowledge of fiber and twist and an informational handout with resources for learning more.
