Why spin socks? Socks only require about 4 oz of fiber, they are a great way to experiment with color, fibers and patterns, and yes - they are awesome to wear! Nothing compares to handspun, hand knit socks. In this workshop we will spin different wools and blends, try different plies and discuss what makes a good sock yarn and why.

SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED:  Advanced Beginner

PREREQUISITE:  Must be able to spin, ply and adjust wheel without assistance.
