Spinning locks

06/06/2018 –10:00 - 16:30


Spinning locks is easy when you know how – learn how to spin locks from fleece and mohair (angora goat) and take home some spectacular hand made yarn that you will never see in a shop.

And have a great day out with at Knuston Hall spinning locks of mohair and curly fleece with inspirational people who like what you like.  No previous experience necessary – e-spinners are available for absolute beginners and those who are unsure of their ability. The aim is maximum return for minimum skill! And spinning locks is easier than you might think using my ‘supported’ method.

Bring your own wheel and equipment and expect to make at least one 50 gram skein of unique and extremely beautiful yarn in natural colours – grey or white – and dye it if time permits.

Course includes 50gm fleece locks in either grey or white, and 50 gm agora locks, and all necessary materials  for spinning it. If you wish to dye your own unique handspun yarn please bring protective clothing and a dye pan if you have one.

Course includes 3 course lunch, home-made cakes, biscuits and refreshments – and a very warm welcome. We will be using the Practical Room so please park in the lower car park.

Booking is essential – either by email or phone – as numbers and materials are limited.
