Drop spindling is one of the oldest fiber arts, believed to have started with a simple stick rolled on the thigh. In this class we will learn about wool fiber, its characteristics, and the different varieties of drop spindles. We begin with lap spinning and quickly move onto the drop spindle and how to create the yarn you are looking for. In the second week we will learn how to ply your fiber into a 2-ply yarn!
This class is for beginning spinners. No experience required.
