Welcome to The Spinning Barn.
If you are a hand spinner who like many, is a little unclear on the difference between worsted and woollen spinning then this two-day workshop is for you. It has been designed to clarify and explore the differences between worsted and woollen spinning spending to enable you to create very specific yarns when you choose to. You will spend a full day on each.
You will have the opportunity to card and comb a variety of fleeces including our very own North Ronaldsay and Icelandic, to determine the most appropriate way of processing each. By the end of the workshop you will have at least two fabulous skeins of yarn to take home to knit, crochet or just admire!
Workshop spaces are limited to two people to ensure that I can offer sufficient time and attention to each, so do book early.
We are all aware of the ongoing pandemic situation so I would like to reassure you that I have taken every measure possible to maintain your health and comfort when you visit The Spinning Barn.
