Natural colored cotton is wonderful but there are times when we need COLOR. This class will be using dyed cotton lint, carded to create beautiful heathered or bright colored cotton yarn. Then they will learn how to spin from hand painted sliver. In the afternoon they will ply their yarns either with their own handspun or commercial yarn.
