Get involved in another part of the spinning process by blending your own Tweed batt!

We will begin this workshop by introducing students to the drum carder by blending a batt to their optimal speckled preference and what materials work best to achieve a tweed effect.

Students will then experiment with different gauges and plies to achieve their desired tweed result in their handspun yarn that can be archived in a provided sample book.

Level of experience: Advanced Beginner (must be able to spin and ply but no carding experience required)
