fibercrafts

1 day class

In this one-day intermediate level class you will learn the basics of spinning cotton on a spinning wheel. You will learn about different varieties of cotton and how to use your homespun yarn. Cotton makes wonderful dishtowels, baby items, sweaters and other articles of clothing.

You will learn how to spin cotton off the seed, then how to hand gin your cotton and spin that. You will then learn how to card and spin the cotton fibers, as well as how to spin commercially prepared roving with both white and naturally colored fibers. You will leave with six sample skeins and some cotton seeds.

The handout, Handspinning Cotton: The Last Great Frontier, by Patsy Zawistoski will be provided and is included in the materials fee.

This class is from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
