Exploring the Long Draw

Wool spinning long draw

Course Overview

Did you know that for spinning some fibers, you have to do a long draw? Did you know that you can’t get a true woolen spun yarn without the long draw? Did you know that, in the end, spinning with a long draw is faster? This class will not only show you how to do a long draw, it will let you know when to use it, the fibers best done with it, and the best preparations for it. We will spin with a number of different fibers, and students will spin from thick to thin and everywhere in between to create many samples in learning the technique.
