This is a beginner level class for spinners interested in learning how to use long draw techniques to create woolen spun yarns. The class will work through five different fiber preparations using different long draw methods. We will use roving, batts, rolags, puni-style rolags, and combed top to see how fiber prep affects your finished yarn.
Students must have a basic understanding of how to spin yarn on a spinning wheel.
