Spinning Bioengineered Fibers with Joan Ruane

Dates: September 23, 2021 - September 23, 2021

Cost per ticket: $185.00

About Class

As a friend calls it; “spinning a banana split” as we will spin everything from pineapple to banana and even milk fiber.   Bioengineered fibers are man made from organic natural fiber-based composites. Some time called “vegan” fibers or ECO- friendly fibers. The consistency of the fiber depends on the variety of the plant, source, species and the geographic area. The best part of these fibers is that they are bio gradable and non-carcinogenic. We will be spinning a wide variety of the man- made fibers and each has its own characteristics. In the afternoon we will be blending and plying these fibers with other fibers. Bring a small niddy noddy as we will be making a lot of small skeins to label and take home!
