Spinning Mohair Neat or Artsy!

October 6th-3 hours(1:00-4:00)

Classroom Location: SOMOS Rm 1 - 108B Civic Plaza Drive, Taos, NM 87571

Spinners sometimes shy away from mohair because it’s just so… different! No more! Fall in love with mohair by learning all it can become! We will discuss the properties of mohair, it’s strengths (and weaknesses), and its suitability for various projects. You will learn to recognize the different grades of mohair, and become familiar with the purposes for each of them. Then we will play with everything from curls to commercial top, with combs, with clouds, turning mohair roving into glossy fine yarn and highly textured art yarns. This is your chance to delve deeply into the beauty of mohair!

Skill Level: Intermediate

Students should be able to spin and ply a basic yarn; adjust their spinning wheel for take up and speed ratio.
