Our spinning wheels turn as do the hands of time. Which means it is time again to offer the next three installments of the Rockin’ Whorl Spinning Club which will be the first three of 2015!
My how time flies when one is spinning yarn.
A spinner at heart and soul. I learned to spin before I learned to knit and after a brief love/hate thing with my wheel, was at home! I learned to dye (second fiber love) because of spinning! I knew I was a goner the first time I sat at a wheel, put my foot on the treadle, pushed down and watched that wheel go around. You know the feeling, right? The feel, the sound, the smell... at once, I felt at home and connected to my people. I love making yarn. I love the feel of the fiber slipping through my fingers and the control I have over it. I'm constantly mesmerized by the shifting colors as all those fiber are twisted into a single thread. I love building a yarn based on a project, gathering all the pieces needed, then taking all the twists and turns until I have the yarn I dreamed. Making yarn is my happy place! If it is yours, then this club might be just right for you.
Each club shipment is offered separately and then also, as a three kit package. I like this approach, because it gives us a whole bunch of freedom in planning and pricing each kit, and it gives you choices. We like choices! You can join us for the all three fiber adventures and buy the three package deal or you can just choose to purchase one or two of the kits individually as your interests and budget deem fit.
These next three shipments will be sent in: February, April, and July of 2015
In each shipment, you'll receive between 4 to 6 ounces of that month’s fiber offering. Sometimes it will be one fiber type and sometimes more than one. It all depends on what fiber adventure we have cooked up. You will receive notes from me on the fiber type (composition), breed specific information and history, why it was chosen, the whys of the dye choice, and ideas for how to spin it for different types of yarn and to get a yarn that will work with a few applicable projects. Also included is a lovely recipe card for you to record your spinning notes and samples.
Each club package will only be available to you. You can order more of the kit fiber, or other fibers and yarns we offer, in that colorway whenever you wish. We will not be offering these specific spinning kits to the general public at anytime.
If you love to spin, love color and texture, and have an adventurous fiber spirit, I hope you’ll join us as we explore fibers and types and round out our spinning experience.
Just like Sock Club, there are limited openings. Actually, because it takes fiber so long to dry and space for that is at a premium, we are more limited in available spots for this club. So if you purchase one month and decide later you would like the whole three month option there is a chance we could be out of spaces.
NO DISCOUNTS OR COUPONS APPLY TO ROCKIN' WHORL CLUB PURCHASES.
