Spinning Art Yarns

This class will be an exploration of the world of unique handspun “art yarns.” We will learn about color theory, fiber blending and yarn design, and the technical spinning and plying techniques that will enable you to create supercoiled yarns, chain-plied and boucle yarns and more.
