Color Tricks in Spinning

Janel Laidman

Learn to control the color changes in your spinning to get just the effect you want—stripes, no stripes, short stripes, long stripes! We'll make a gradient yarn, a fractal stripe, and lots more tricks. We'll also learn how to card fibers to produce particular color effects. Learn to tone down a fiber that's too bright, which colors to blend to get that perfect green, or how to make your colors pop. Note: Students should be familiar with their wheel and be able to spin a continuous thread. Can be done on a spindle but students may not spin enough to see the effects.

About Janel Laidman: When Janel learned to knit as an exchange student in Denmark, a lifelong odyssey began. Colorwork, lace, socks, and books, including The Eclectic Sole, followed. She has been spinning for 20 years and is the originator of the Fractal Stripe color method.
