Spinning courses, craft kits and handcrafted gifts

Hand spinning courses, live classes, kits and online workshops from UK handspinners. Hand spinning is the method of turning fibres, such as wool, cotton and silk into yarn which can then be woven into fabric. Spinning has a very long history and features in many of our best loved fairy tales where all beautiful, young princesses spent most of their time at the spinning wheel. Fibres can be harvested regularly from the living animal. Well known wools include Angora, Merino and Mohair. Alpaca fleece is becoming more and more popular in the UK (having now been exported from its native South America to many corners of the globe) and is beautifully soft and silky. It's also hypoallergenic! There is also Pashmam which comes from the Tibetan goat of the Himalayan range and is used in the finest of pashminas. Spinning is still a popular skill and you too can learn from one of our expert spinners - come along and join a course or spinning workshop. Not at all like the arduous and sweaty activity that groups of people sometimes do on exercise bikes in gyms - this spinning is both more relaxed and creative (and possibly just as good for you)!
