Be the Boss of Your Yarn with Janel Laidman
Be the boss of your yarn! Learn how to control grist, twist, and plying. Learn to make a fine yarn, a thick yarn, a hard wearing yarn, or a lofty yarn by controlling your wheel and your hands. Learn how ply structure and fiber choices affect your yarn. We'll also briefly discuss fiber prep and how it affects your yarn, and we'll play around with a few designer yarn techniques.
