I am a spinner at heart. I learned to spin before I learned to knit. After a brief love/hate thing with my wheel, I 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 when I put my foot on that 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. We can spin our wheels and make beautiful yarns together!

COLOR!!!!!

It's already time for our next three installments of the Rockin’ Whorl Club!!

Our theme is one of my favorites COLOR!!! 

I know... what's new? We are here because I am all about the color. What we are going to do this time around our wheel, is explore how different blends and blending techniques affect the dye and therefore the color. Our three blends are: 1. A lovely 100% Merino top that comes to me in three varying shades of grey which I will then dye!! 2. A Targhee, Bamboo and Silk blend!! All three of those fibers will take the dye differently giving us some serious color magic. 3. Lastly but certainly not least, a Polwarth and Silk blend that is sure to make our spinning hearts happy! All three of our offerings will give us plenty to explore in relationship to blends and color!

Each club shipment is offered separately and 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 do 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: August 2017, October 2017 and December 2017.

In each shipment, you'll receive between 4 to 10 ounces of that month’s fiber offering. Usually most of the shipments are one fiber type. It all depends on what fiber adventure we have cooked up. You will receive an email from me with what I refer to as Dyer's Notes. My research, experience and thoughts on everything from my inspiration, to the fiber type (composition) which includes breed specific information and history, to type of dye choice, and ideas for how to spin it for different types of color patterning along with the best spin, ply, and weight yarn and the knitting or weaving it works best with.

And... a 15% discount code in the first dyer's notes that is good from the first shipment to the last.

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.
