One of the most satisfying parts of the creative process is following a craft from its most base form, all the way to the finished product. Learn the Olde World craft of spinning yarn by taking one of the Iron Oak Farm Spinning Classes.
Spinning your own yarn adds a deep creative element to any knitting, crocheting, weaving or fiber craft. You create the yarn! This gives you control over the colors, textures and types of material; wool, silk, tinsel, cotton, even beads, sequins and feathers!
What you will learn: How to card raw fiber, how to draft roving, how a spinning wheel works and how to spin a 4 oz skein of yarn to take home.
2. You will also learn how to draft fiber which is the basic action of spinning.
4. And finally, you will have about an hour and a half to learn the art of spinning. By the end of the class you will have a finished, 4oz skein of spun yarn to bring home! It might be a bit wonky, but most students find that the yarn can be used for a knitting or crochet project.
