Jillian’s Spinning: Spinning for Stitching

I’m teaching Spinning for Stitching at Yakira’s Intrepid Spinner Retreat the weekend after this and I’ve been monkeying with my samples. I almost always respin or add to my samples every time I teach a class becasue I’m always learning.

Look at these tiny samples I spun in different fibers. I spun the singles at close to 40 wpi then plied to balance. Look how different each yarn is, I love it.
