Navajo Spindle Spinning - Long and Tall
Tuesday, April 24, 2012, 7:30 p.m., Wolbach Farm
18 Wolbach Rd., Sudbury, MA
Barbara Clorite-Ventura will lead us to spin on a tall Navajo style spindle using long Navajo Churro wool. Learn to keep the spindle from skittering away, learn a long draw technique on carded fiber, learn the double-drafting mode of going from rolag to spun singles in a two-step fashion. Some Navajo style spindles will be available, but bring any Navajo Spindle you have, and any long stapled carded wool. Materials fee $2 for washed and hand-carded Navajo Churro rolags.
Members and non-members welcome, as always!
