Drop Spinning for Lace-Weight Yarn with Andrea Jurgrau
Learn the basics of drop spinning with a focus on creating yarn for lace knitting. Students with basic spindle skills can hone them, learning techniques for creating a smooth, thin yarn. Students new to spinning can learn basic spindle-spinning techniques and practice them. We will talk about spinning singles as well as plying, with demonstrations of Andean plying, setting twist in your singles yarn, using a niddy-noddy to make skeins and blocking your yarn. We will also discuss fiber preparation and choosing appropriate fibers and spindles for spindle-spinning lace weight yarn.

Supplies
Supplies are optional: bring a drop spindle and fine fiber if you have them. Otherwise the instructor will have practice spindles and fiber to lend out during class.

Homework
None
