Spinning Study Group

We are thinking of starting a spinning study group at the cottage from about mid March 2018.  It will most likely be on a Saturday afternoon, once a month and will be timed to not clash with other Saturday events currently scheduled.  Let Trudie know if you are keen so we can gauge interest.

Knitting off the Bobbin


Jan S wearing her wild spun knitted off the bobbin shawl, her daughter is now suffering from shawl envy…. guess she’ll have to make another!

Jenny M (with her back to us) is wearing the fabulous creation from her wild spun off the bobbin shawl.

Spinning Wheel and Spindle

Sukrita has been playing around again.  The two skeins and the ball on the left were all spun into singles using a spindle and the skeins were plied using a spinning wheel.  On the right we have a pale skein of raw unwashed merino and both skeins on the right were spun using a spinning wheel and Navajo plied.

Wheel Donation

A very generous person donated this wheel to us recently.  It looks beautiful.  A little tender loving care by our equipment officers and this wheel will be spinning some fibre in the near future.
