OVERVIEW

Participants will have the opportunity to sit at a modern double treadle spinning wheel and learn how to treadle in one direction.  Locally produced wool fleece will be provided and the process of preparing the fleece will be demonstrated and explained.  All participants will get the opportunity to spin a continuous strand of single yarn which they will be able to take away with them.  A demonstration will be given of how two single strands are plyed together in order to form a balanced finished yarn.

This is an excellent opportunity to get a ‘taste’ of handspinning and could be the start of a wonderful pastime with warm and practical results!
