Spin the Yarn You Need: Understanding Wheel Adjustments with Meagan Condon

About Spin the Yarn You Need: Understanding Wheel Adjustments with Meagan Condon

Your very first yarn was thick and uneven. Shortly after, you mastered spinning the finest lace… and couldn’t quite get that thick yarn again. Now you want something in the middle. There are a number of different factors you can control to get the yarn thickness you want, from what you do in the draft zone to what ratios you select on your spinning wheel. This class takes a technical look at making adjustments to get the yarn weight you actually need for a particular project!
