Color Control: Fractal Spinning with Heavenly Bresser
Fractal spinning results in a subtle self-striping yarn.
It is one of the many ways to control color and create dynamic yarn from a dyed roving or fiber braid for knitting, crocheting, and weaving. And it is pretty easy!
To start, we'll look at 2 different approaches to fractals--a basic 2-ply as well as a 3-ply. Then, we'll choose one method to spin during the session.
Finally, we'll discuss different applications for fractal yarns.
Note: Must be able to spin a continuous singles yarn and be able to ply a 2-ply yarn.
