Think Outside the Braid with Heavenly Bresser
As we explore different ways to spin combed-top braids including gradient spinning, combination drafting, and spinning multiple braids together into one yarn, we will use both color theory and creativity for the best results.
Our goal is to gain confidence in spinning braids with varying colors into a cohesive yarn AND to think outside the box to achieve your desired outcome from the raw materials.
Note: Must be able to spin a continuous singles yarn and ply a 2-ply yarn. Drop-spindle friendly class!
