1 hour yarn spinning lesson
I will teach you the basics of spinning with a drop spindle, specifically a turkish spindle. I'll provide a spindle to get you started, 5 grams of wool roving, and a cheat-sheet for you to take notes on. Lessons are in my home outside of Buckley, WA. When you go home, you'll have created your very own first yarn, from roving through setting the twist. And you'll still have more roving to practice on!

Training & Qualifications
I started spinning in 2014 with a homemade, poorly-balanced spindle that was not constructed well, using raw cashmere from my goats (fiber length of about 1/2"). By some miracle, I stuck with it, and kept experimenting, finding easier and easier ways to spin. Now I use well-balanced turkish spindles, and have found roving that is very easy to spin from.
