Core Yarn -- what a misnomer! This surface-coiled-fiber-yarn is terrific eye-candy and can be fun to spin with the right tricks up your sleeve. It's a wonderful way to turn an artful batt into awesome yarn. We'll explore what it takes to make this a balanced yarn, too, so you can do what you like with it once it's spun.
This e-booklet (in handout form) got great reviews at its debut at the NwRSA 2010 Conference, Wool In The Woods. We spun some lovely Crosspatch Signature Batts onto #10 Crochet cotton core.
This is the next in a series of e-booklet workshops I'll be releasing as the year progresses!
This e-booklet on spinning core yarns discusses how to develop a balanced core yarn with a plied yarn core, tuning your wheel for spinning core yarns, using other cores, finishing and knitting with core yarns, and even includes a fun knitting pattern, a medallion scarf. It is packed with color pictures. This e-booklet is geared to spinners who have learned to spin and ply on the spinning wheel, and are looking for new ways to turn fiber into yarn.
