12+ Ways to Spin Painted Top

Did you ever purchase a hand painted top and spin it only to be disappointed in the final color outcome? This workshop analyzes how dyed tops and rovings are painted and how the fiber can be spun in 12+ ways to yield different color combinations in the final yarn. The focus will be on color and how to achieve beautiful color results instead of mud. The techniques taught in this workshop would be suitable for all fabric construction types including knitting, crocheting, and weaving.
