Thursday PM

This class will focus on a plying technique for creating stacks that give the appearance of beads. We will explore ways to spin your singles with pops of color and texture using contrasting colors, sections of fiber fluff and trapping them in the stacks during the plying process.

Skill Level:
Familiar with your wheel, can spin a continuous thread and make a plied yarn

Material fee:

$15 for Fiber


Student Supplies:

• Wheel with a large orfice (1/2” or more) to accommodate textured yarns

• Extra bobbins

• Lazy Kate, Niddy Noddy and any additional spinning tools you prefer

If bringing an e-spinner, make sure you have a full battery and a stand at the height you like.  The venue is not responsible for providing electricity or stands.


2 bobbins with at least 1 oz of singles spun on each of contrasting colors (Worsted spun at approx. 10-12 WPI (not very fine), with enough twist for plying)
