If you would like to learn how to create unique yarn for your knitting or fiber projects, this class is for you. This workshop will teach: why wool spins into yarn, how to prepare wool for spinning, how to spin on a drop spindle and a spinning wheel.  

  1. Part 1: will teach the basics of fiber preparation, drafting and spinning on a drop spindle. 
  2. Part 2: will teach spinning on a spinning wheel, plying and finishing your skein. Equipment will be provided and studio time is included in the fee.
  3. If you have your own wheel, please bring it. 
  4. (Studio time=time to spin on wheels at Madison Wool; some wheels available for home rental)

This class has been very popular, with many of our students confidently taking classes afterwards with our national/international visiting spinning teachers, and even winning prizes at local fiber festivals for their handspun yarns!  We are proud and happy to be able to teach them a solid foundation in the basics of spinning.
