Yarn and Fiber Characteristics - SOLD OUT

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This “hands on” class will help participants understand how the properties of fiber become the properties of yarn and how those properties affect the products we make.  

We will first explore the world of fibers; where they come from and how they grow and then handle the fibers and examine their characteristics under magnification.   Finally, we will dissect yarns to see how fiber, twist and ply affect the look, feel and durability of the products we ultimately knit, crochet, felt or weave.   

We will explore animal, vegetable and man-made fibers.   This class has appeal for felters, knitters, weavers and spinners alike.

Skill level:  All levels welcome.
