Textiles - Spinning

Hand spinning is one of the traditional crafts of the Appalachian Mountain Region. It was one of the first steps to creating cloth whether that fabric is knit, crocheted or woven.

Students will learn the parts of the spinning wheel along with drafting and spinning the fiber on the bobbin of the wheel. They will spin two bobbins, learn to ply the yarn and measure the spun yarn onto a niddy noddy.
