Preparing your own fibers to create a fractal interplay of color gives you added control in your resulting spun yarn and finished cloth. In this workshop we will explore how to blend your own color repeating fractal progression sample using the blending board or drum carder. Spinning and plying methods that are suited to getting stunning pattern and color repeats will be covered with pattern suggestions that will show off your fractal yarns provided.

Skills Required:

Students must be able to spin a continuous single yarn.

Bring to Class:

  • A spinning wheel in good working order or a drop spindle
