Two-day workshop! How can I make THAT yarn? Inquiring minds want to know. This two-day workshop will get you to the next level with your handspinning. Patsy will cover fiber preparation, yarn structure (woolen, worsted, cabled/crepe, boucle) and finishing techniques. We will work with Patsy’s secret yarn decoder! Student pairs will decode yarn samples to understand the variety of structures utilized and how they may affect later usage. You will be ready to spin the yarn you want once equipped with structure information and wheel mechanics. Worksheets, a decoder, yarns and fiber will be provided. You may bring a commercial yarn and fiber for matching. The event is supported in part by the Mid-Atlantic Fiber Association. Pre-registration required; tuition & materials fee.
