About the course

We're going to cover things like cashmere, silk, and yak which are difficult fibers for most spinners to be able to work with. We'll cover chained-plying techniques, colorwork techniques to help us achieve a better-looking yarn from hand painted and kettle dyed roving as well as doing long draw. We'll also cover different yarn projects so that you can tailor yarn specifically to a project that you have in mind.
