Spinning with Commercial Yarns

About class

This workshop is all about spinning strategies for revitalizing your commercial yarn stash. Participants will explore ways to “re-spin” commercial yarns as well as ways to spin together commercial yarns and fiber: We will re-spin yarns to create “energized” yarns; we will cover several techniques for re-spinning and plying 2 and 3 and 4 yarns together; we will cover combining fiber and commercial yarns to create a variety of core-spun yarns; and we will explore ways of combining handspun singles with commercial yarns to create both smooth and textured yarns. The yarns you make with these techniques will look more awake, have more edge, and inspire you more!
