About This Class

This class will give you the skills to spin wool, silk and other fibres into frog hair.  Starting with setting up your wheel, we look at the special spinning techniques for ultra fine spinning, including the common problems and how to deal with them.

Note that I suggest you take my classes in setting up your wheel and spinning finer before this one in order to get the most out of this class.
