Spinning your own yarn can give you even more control over your
finished knit or crochet project.
You can learn to directly control the thickness of the finished yarn.
By the end of his first lesson, Noah, one of the yarn store family kids,
was able to spin a thick-n-thin yarn that has since been mistaken for Rowan Biggy Print.
Once you learn how to spin, try some kool aid dying at home, or create novelty yarn.
The possibilities are endless.
Spindles available for purchase at the shop.
