About This Class

This class takes you from where you are with your spinning right now, to spinning finer!  You will need a spinning wheel and fibre, preferably wool.

You will learn how to prepare your fibre and adjust your wheel to the optimum for relaxed, fine spinning.

I have been spinning for a couple years and have mostly learned from video. These instructions are very clear and have helped me understand pieces of information I needed!!
This is a well presented class I found very helpful. I'm only beginning to learn spinning (I've had my wheel for less than a month), but ultimately spinning 2-ply lace and sock yarn is my goal. Thanks to this class the quality of my spinning has noticeably improved, and I'm closer to the consistency I aim for. Thank you!
This class is helpful for someone who already has a basic knowledge and some experience with spinning. I found the tips for preparing the fiber, starting the spin and correcting mistakes most useful.
