Saturday PM: Mission SpinPossible — Tweed Effects with Silk with Michael Kelson

No longer available

Instructor: Michael Kelson

Tweed yarns are great fun to spin!  Tweed yarns typically have inclusions which add color or textural elements to a plied yarn, and a great way to add a tweedy effect to your yarn is to use silk! This class will explore getting tweed-like effects using various preparations of silk, including silk top, silk hankies, and silk noil in both preparation and ply.
