Are you interested in spinning more consistent yarns, especially for a desired end use like a sweater? Have you ever spun yarn for a project, like a sweater, and your yarn was way too heavy or inconsistent from the beginning of the project towards the end? This workshop will explore the concept of "Grist", a spinning term that plays an important role in how the construction of the yarns we spin influence the weight and hand of the yarns' final outcome. You will leave more confident as a spinner in controlling the consistency, weight, and hand of the yarns you create.
Skill Level Required: Intermediate - Student should be able to spin a continuous yarn and have experience with plying.
