There's nothing wrong with "default spinning," where your hands and feet know what to do, and you make a yarn almost without thinking about it. But when you want to expand beyond your default yarn, this series will help. You can vary the diameter, twist, and texture of the yarn by adjusting your wheel, your fiber preps, and your drafting style. Just a few tips and tricks will broaden the range of yarns you can make—it's like reinventing your wheel!
We ran this SAL as one of several activities for Spinning and Weaving Week in October, 2020.
Is this course for you?
This course is best for confident beginners or above. If you can spin yarn that holds together, and you're ready to take your yarn to the next level, you'll enjoy this spin-along.

She is a Schacht girl through and through. Name a Schacht product, and chances are she spins or weaves on it! Stephanie returned to Schacht in 2020 (after a few years away) as a Sales Specialist.
