We dye to spin. I love spinning. From the ocean to the sky, all the beauty that the eye can behold from God’s good earth; if you can imagine it you and spin it. It is relaxing and rewarding to see the colors blend together as the wool drafts through your fingers and hands. You can produce traditional or soft, plump silky singles to create the latest trend in the artsy yarns. I like to spin the wool with a lot of crimp you get more stretch, loftiness, and bounce in the skeins. Mohair and wensleydale are some of the wools that give you shine, crimp, and strength. The length makes it easy for beginning spinner as well.
When you dye the gentle shading and blending of the colors recreates the beauty of nature from God’s good earth more than any other medium. If you can imagine the yarn, you can spin it. The techniques are endless. We will show you how. Instructions are simple.
The balance between the amount of twist, the thickness of the roving, and the length of the staple determine the cohesiveness of the yarn. The length of the fiber enables a beginning spinner to be more successful. We sell fine top combed roving from down the back of the sheep.
Clouds of soft fiber and you can tame it with our hands and the possibilities are endless. We do not raise any animals but we find the best top finest in the world. You can change the ratios on the wheel to control the pull, when you are creating the big bulky wool you need a fast pull. The whorl controls the speed of the wheel. All of our wheels have adjustable ratios built into the wheel. When you are a beginner you want a slow speed.
We carry the five top main line spinning wheels. You can find one that will suit you. We always work with you to upgrade.
