The Art of Spinning Fine: Super Fine Kid Mohair

Judith MacKenzie

Sunday PM

Kid mohair is a treasure. It has a hand as exquisite as silk and an amazing luster. It takes dye brilliantly and is incredibly strong. In this class we will learn how to spin it as fine as a spider’s web. We’ll also spin a textured boucle and a brushed yarn both as light as a feather. We’ll use both dyed and undyed locks.

Skill level: Must be able to spin a continuous thread and have a good relationship with their wheel or e-spinner
