Create fun and funky yarn from reclaimed fibers!

Once you’ve learned the basics from The Wheel and The Wool, take your spinning up a notch while taking a small step to help save the planet! Guild member Gigi Matthews is back again with some fiber fun, done on a spinning wheel! This is a three part series, or choose just one class, it’s up to you!

Class #1 – February 26, 2022, Blending and Spinning with Plant Fibers: Their histories and how to work with them 
Learn how to make handspun yarn using plant fibers such as flax (aka linen), hemp, nettles, jute, sisal, abaca, kapok, cotton, wood shavings, bamboo, soy, and Tencel (including other silky white fibers made from plants such as rose, mint, corn, and pineapple).

Class #2 – March 5, 2022, Making Art Yarn: Blending and Spinning with Unusual and Upcycled Fibers

Rare breed sheep; fleece locks; Seacell and/or other silk substitutes such as corn/ingeo and milk casein; silk throwsters waste; weaving thrums;  fabric, ribbons, yarn, and thread remnants; shredded denim reclaimed from clothing manufacturing; “plarn” and “clarn”(yarn made from plastic bags and cloth).


Class #3 – March 19, 2022, Making Concept Yarns: Handspun Yarns with a Theme

Learn how to create handspun yarn based on a theme – such as “forest floor” or “blue jeans on the beach” – incorporating a variety of fibers, colors, and textures.
