Florida is hot and not conducive to woolen yarns for most of the year. But there are so many other exciting non-wool fibers to spin! In this class, the students will explore spinning plant-based fibers such as bamboo, Tencel, hemp, flax, cotton, as well as silk and faux cashmere. We will discuss the best uses of these different fibers and learn tricks to make the spinning experience a happy one.
