It’s one thing to know how to spin and make a beautiful and colourful yarn, and it’s a whole other thing to know how that yarn is going to work up into cloth. If you want the colours to appear in the cloth in a certain way, then you can work backwards to determine how you want to spin the fibre.

In our latest SOS course release, Spinning Intentional Colour, taught by Felicia Lo Wong, spinners learn how to develop a functional, working understanding of colour and how it affects our handspun yarn.

Learn more at Spinning Intentional Colour with Felicia! We hope by the end of this class, we hope you will have more confidence in your skills and abilities to spin colour with intention. In the course workbook, you can find all of the fundamental information, as well as photos and links to inspirational resources mentioned in the course.

For any questions and to share your progress, visit us in the SOS community forums. We’d also love to see photos of your work – tag us on Instagram with #sosspinningintentionalcolour and #schoolofsweetgeorgia!

Spinning Study Group // Week Four

Week four is already here over at the SOS Spinning Study Group, with this week’s topic: Worsted Draft Sampling!

This week, the focus is on sampling worsted drafts with a worsted prep. If you want to produce a shinier yarn, more resistant to pilling, these are the drafts to opt for. The exercises will help you notice which drafts you do and which draft produces the yarn you like better for your project. If you want to produce a “true worsted” yarn, use a worsted prep and a worsted draft.
