Spinning For Socks


Shelia January

3 hour workshop: Saturday 1-4


Are you a spinner who loves knitting socks but who hasn’t been happy with the results from your handspun, or who wants to expand your sock yarns into more interesting and exotic fiber blends? In this class we will look at the possible twist structures of 2-ply, 3-ply and 4-ply sock yarn as well as trying a variety of fibers and fiber blends. We’ll also discuss fiber preparation and sock knitting tips for hand spinners.

Materials Fee: $12 includes spinning fiber and other class materials.

Students to Bring: A spinning wheel in good working order. If you have a Woolee

Winder, please bring a standard flyer as well. Bring at least 3-4 bobbins, a Lazy Kate.
