Our beginning class covers all the basics to get you
started. Learn about different types of wools and
their uses for different styles of yarn, the process
of washing raw wool, how to prepare worsted and
woolen yarns using wool combs and hand carders,
and how to operate a drum carder. After you have
spun a sufficient amount of singles yarn, you learn
how to ply them together to make suitable yarns
for knitting or weaving. Students will use our
studio wheels, but are encouraged to bring their
own wheel if they already have one. All materials
included with tuition.
