If you've been crocheting or knitting for a while, you may be getting the itch to make your own unique yarns. Spinning with a drop spindle is compact, inexpensive, portable, and a great introduction to spinning on a wheel! We will learn how to prepare raw fleece by carding, and spin it into a singles. Then we'll ply it to make a balanced 2-ply yarn and wind it into your very first skein!

drop spindle (can also be borrowed or purchased from instructor for $12)and 1 oz. wool roving
