Spinning yarns with color repeats is a joy—but buying fiber dyed to spin stripes can be expensive. In Card Wool for Color, Esther Rodgers shows you how to make your own striping, ombre, and fractal colorways. From solid-colored top to multicolored yarns, this course leads you step-by-step through the process of spinning the colorful yarn of your dreams.
This course covers:
- Using a drum carder, blending board, and hackle
- Choosing and placing colors for ombre, gradient, and fractal yarns
- Making batts, rolags, roving, and top
- Plying yarns three ways for sharp color transitions, diffused patterns of color, and gentle color transitions
Choose your very own colorways and bring them to life with a few easy-to-master techniques!
“This was a great class showing me how to achieve striping colors on my drum carder and my blending board and hackle. Although I have used these tools in the past, I recently have been interested in creating self-striping yarn for a corner to corner granny square afghan and now I know how. It seems like it will be easier than dyeing long stripe colorways on my fiber/yarn. I am looking forward to starting this new project.”
