Also known as Navajo or N-plying, chain plying is a technique that in its most basic form creates a three-ply yarn out of a bobbin of handspun singles. While simple in construction, this useful plying method can feel a bit complicated at first. Kate will share tips for yarn management, including bobbins and lazy kates, to give you more control throughout the process. Starting from the beginning with basic, balanced chain plied yarns, we will go on to explore multi-strand, beaded, and textured options. This class welcomes spinners who have never chain-plied and those who would like to see where else this technique might take you.
