Flax a Very Old Spinning Challenge

1 day

Flax is a classic fiber, albeit very different than wool. It’ll easily become another joy of spinning after you learn new techniques to manage its particular characteristics. This class teaches you quick ways to dress a distaff with long-line flax, wet-spin line or roving, and scour finished yarns. While fibers are provided, you’ll bring a spinning wheel or medium-weight spindle. Distaffs can be attached to your wheel, free-standing or one of several improvised creations from directions sent with supply lists.
