Fractal spinning is a popular technique that results in a subtle self-striping yarn. It is one of the many ways to control color and create dynamic yarn for knitting, crocheting, and weaving. To start, we’ll take a look at two different approaches to fractal spinning: a basic 2-ply, as well as a 3-ply. Then we’ll choose one method to spin during the session. Finally, we’ll discuss different applications for fractal yarns.
