No more stress! Join us as we tackle ply techniques on the spinning wheel. Learn how to establish and maintain a smooth rhythm while Navajo plying. Explore ways to ply from a center-pull ball for better control and fewer tangles. We will also discuss what makes for a truly balanced yarn, how to intentionally spin an “off” balance yarn and the many reasons you might want to do so. Finally, we’ll take a look at additional tools for your future plying endeavors. Are you ready? Let’s ply!
Note: Techniques will be shown on the spinning wheel. Students can take spindle-spun yarn and ply from their singles onto the wheel OR from bobbins if the singles were spun on the wheel and ply onto a new bobbin on their wheel.
Technique Requirements: Students must know basics of spinning, i.e., how to spin a continuous singles yarn, have spun and set a yarn prior to class.
