Have you ever wanted to spin your own self-striping yarn from dyed fiber? We'll work with both fiber that's been handpainted in multiple colours, and multiple colours of solid-dyed fiber, to spin self-striping singles – and you'll learn about planning and plying methods to achieve a variety of colour effects in plied yarns as well. You must be able to spin and ply a basic two-ply yarn, but we'll discuss chain plying and three-ply yarns too. Wheel or spindle, student's choice!
