LET’S SPIN SOME YARN!
We are passionate about natural fibres…and what better way to have unique yarn than to spin it yourself! The best thing, is that you don’t need a spinning wheel to get started – Drop Spindles are a small, simple but very effective way to learn to and enjoy spinning yarn!
We have a wonderful variety of spinning fibre available, from hand dyed feltable merino roving
We have some lovely new Stellar Fibreworks Inspire Merino Rovings (superwash) for spinning available now…
AND – we have some rolag packs in stock which are really fun to spin – Find available rolags here / special order a colourway blend by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’ve just started spinning & would like to join a spin-along, please have a look at the Ravelry South African group – the 7 Day Spin-Along 5–11 October 2015 thread. There will be some lovely spinning-related prizes offered, so dust off your spinning wheel or spindle
WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN TO SPIN YOUR OWN YARN?
If you haven’t spun before & would like to learn, you can get started with a simple drop spindle (available here). You can also add a starter kit which includes some fibre + a spindle bag + instructions to get you started! – a little practice every day will have you spinning in no time!!
