If you haven’t tried long draw spinning before, it can be a bit of a mystery. Most spinners are taught short draw techniques when they are first learning to spin, but may not know they can significantly expand their skills by exploring long draw, or woolen spinning.

Join expert spinning instructor Amy Tyler for a fun lesson in spinning woolen yarns. Whether you’re just getting started or perfecting your long draw skills, you’ll love learning to create lofty, warm yarns that are great to knit and wear.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to identify the qualities that make a yarn woolen and choose the best fiber preparation for your project, determine the difference between drafting with no twist and drafting against twist, and become familiar with new spinning jargon. Amy will guide you through the basics of three different strategies for spinning woolen yarns, including double draft, point of contact, and “woolen.” You’ll also learn Amy’s favorite ways to use carded batts in your woolen spinning.
