Spinning for Your Project with Mary Crosby

NOTE: The first meeting of the 2023-24 year will be held on the second Saturday of the month. Please mark your calendars.

Mary Crosby is a teacher at Madison wool. This program will be held both in-person and online and will cover the basics of spinning for a particular project such as knitting or crochet, including consideration of: 

  •   starting with a pattern that is practical for skill level (project complexity, what is default spinning yarn, for the individual, etc)
  • selecting fleece/fiber appropriate for the final product (soft, medium, course)
  • types of common fibers and characteristics
  • gauge and needle size
  • plying versus singles
  • swatching/sampling
  • resources

Directions to meetings can be found here.
