Wool Spinning – Session 1

Event Date

September 7, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Event Details

Join Tine & Floyd for a demonstration of hand-spinning wool into yarn, a generative craft where what you produce can be made into something new.

This is a demo on the Turkish Spindle, loved for how lightweight, portable and easy to use it is. Learn

  • A little about the drafting process – how to tease the wool out
  • The traditional way to twist – clockwise for singles, anticlockwise for plying
  • Twisting two singles together
  • How to create different weights of yarn – worsted, DK, lace, etc.

Wool spinning can be a relaxing and meditative, as well as rewarding pastime. Join Tine & Floyd to experience a potential new hobby.

Families and children 6+ are welcome.

This event is part of the Sustainable September Celebration 2023 Collection taking place at North Kensington Library. Loads more free events for all ages are listed on Eventbrite and at the Library.
