Spinning

 
 

I keep a nice variety of Ashford spinning wheels, carders, and other accessories on hand for sale at the store. Spinning wheel rental is available for $40.00 per month.


I teach spinning in one-on-one private lessons. Each lesson is two sessions.  In the first session I walk you through the basics and help you get comfortable with the process of spinning.  At the end of this session you take home some fiber and an Ashford Kiwi wheel to work on (at no extra charge), to practice in the comfort of your own home for a week.  A week or so later we get together for the second part of your lesson.  In this session, you will learn to ply two strands of your spinning together to make a two-ply yarn. At the end of that session you take home your first finished skein of your very own hand-spun yarn.  Call for details.

















Fiber Treasures


I keep my spinning wheel and dye kitchen busy here at the farm creating hand-painted and hand-spun yarns for sale at the farm store. With three looms in my life, I always have a nice selection of hand-woven table runners, shawls and scarves for sale as well. Needle felted creatures from trolls to bunnies are each hand made here at the farm, along with mittens made from 100% recycled wool. There are blankets for sale, woven in Canada from Fae Ridge Farm’s flock.
