About the Course
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 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!
All equipment is provided including spinning wheel if required, and sufficient wool to keep you spinning for both days. Refreshments of homemade cakes, biscuits, fresh fruit and drinks are also available and a light vegetarian lunch is included on both days.
Workshop spaces are limited to six people to ensure that I can offer sufficient time and attention to each, so do book early.
Please contact to check availability and to reserve your place.
