Come to our Open day and share our love of spinning natural fibres. Try out our spindles and wheels and make luscious yarn. Spinning with natural fibres is an ancient craft that is deeply embedded in many cultures. The process of forming a yarn by spinning is creative, practical and a type of meditation which links us back to our ancestors. All stages of creating a beautiful yarn from the fibres of a raw fleece will be demonstrated at our Open Day. It’s easy to learn and we will have our spindles, spinning wheels and fibre ready for people to try this ancient craft.
