Here’s a chance to try spinning on a wheel before buying your own. You will learn how to turn wool fiber into yarn with the use of a spinning wheel. We will even play with hand spindles, wool prep and yarn finishing. There will be several wheels available for spinning and if you have a working wheel bring it along. You will leave class with your own hand spindle, wool fiber and your own newly spun yarn.  Three-day class.
