Drafting methods

Do you want more control over the look and feel of your finished yarn?

Does the yarn you're actually spinning match the yarn you dreamed of when you first saw the fiber? How you draft your fiber determines a great deal about what your finished yarn looks and feels like. In this half-day class, you'll learn and have the opportunity to practice a number of drafting methods, including short forward draw, short backward draw, supported long draw, and spinning from the fold. In addition, you'll learn how to choose a draft that will produce the specific yarn you want for the project you have in mind. 

This class is appropriate for beginning through intermediate spinners; you should be able to spin a continuous thread on your wheel. Bring a spinning wheel in good working order, three bobbins, and a lazy kate. 

Taught by Sasha Torres. Class limited to five students. $59, including materials and GST.
