Drafting and Plying with Ginger Clark

Skill Level

All levels
Must be able to spin a continuous yarn.

Class Length

4 Hours


Spinners often have a default way of drafting and never experience different methods of drafting fibers for different yarns. Plying those yarns can make a huge difference in the yarn structure and how that yarn will react when used. In this class we will explore different ways of drafting long and short fibers and plying those single strands for yarns that will be used for knitting, weaving, or other uses.
