Hand Spinning

Hand spinning is the art of twisting natural fibers into a continuous consistent thread. This process can be done by hand or by use of a spinning wheel. Threads can be spun thick or thin and plied together or left as a single strand. The finished yarns can later be dyed or left natural. Hand spun yarn can be used for a variety of textiles i.e. knitting, crocheting, felting, and weaving projects. You can also use raw fiber (unprocessed fiber shorn directly from an alpaca) for knitting, weaving and felting.
