Anne Field Workshop – for Spinners

Posted By BBennett on March 28, 2010

Anne Field, a popular teacher and author from New Zealand, will be presenting a spinning other fibers workshop in April, sponsored by Black Sheep Handweavers Guild.

SPINNING OTHER FIBERS (1 Day Workshop):  The fibers covered will be silk, alpaca and mohair. We will begin with observing and discussing the qualities of the fibers and compare those to the qualities we want in the spun yarn. Different preparation and spinning techniques, from worsted through to woolen will be taught to make the yarn reflect the look of the original fiber and the end use. Several different techniques can be used with each fiber, depending on the required appearance and end use. Small sample skeins will be spun and washed, then analyzed. On a 1 day workshop, already prepared fibers will be used, because of time restraints.
