Color Control: Fractal Spinning
About Color Control: Fractal Spinning with Heavenly Bresser
Fractal spinning can result in a subtle self-striping yarn. It is one of the many ways to control color and create dynamic yarn from a dyed roving or top for knitting, crocheting, and weaving.
To start, we’ll look at two really easy, yet different approaches to fractals—a basic 2-ply as well as a 3-ply using commercial top. Each spinner will have the choice of either method to spin during this session. In addition, we’ll discuss various types of fractal yarns that can be made based on the way fibers are dyed. Finally, we’ll examine samples using fractal yarn.
This Fiber Arts Seminar is offered as part of the 2021 Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival and is limited to 20 students.
