Use a Drum Carder for Color Blending, Heathers and Tweeds
NOTE DATE CHANGE!
This fiber prep class is designed for spinners of all experience levels – and not just for those who own a drum carder! These techniques can be used (in smaller batches) with hand cards.
- Get hands-on experience blending colors and creating gradients on a drum carder
- Examine commercial heather and tweed yarns to see what goes into them, and learn techniques to make batts for spinning tweed yarns
- Take home ready-to-spin batts and dyed fiber samples to continue exploring color
* Bring a drum carder if you have one and are willing to work with a partner, and get a $5 registration discount!
