View Full Version : Handspun singles

04-23-2008, 03:57 PM
Hi! I signed up for a workshop designing yarns with a hand spindle. Basically we are going to work bits of fabric, other fibers, etc., in to yarn using a hand spindle.

We are suppose to bring "handspun singles" and I'm not fully sure what that means. The instructor is away!

Can anyone throw me a clue?

Handspun singles are single-ply yarn you've already spun. It sounds to me like they might be having you add to existing yarn, perhaps?

But, if you haven't spun before I don't see how you'd have any singles to bring :D Definitely contact the instructor when they're back and find out, make sure you know if they're providing all materials or if you have to bring your own fleece or something.

Good luck and have fun!
