Navajo plying is a chaining technique to control colour in spinning. It’s also a great way to use a full bobbin for a finished skein. We will discuss tensioned plying, rhythm in spinning, and practical application. Bring your Spinning Wheel and Lazy Kate or use EWG equipment in this beginner plus class. You will spin full bobbins of specified colour paths and will complete the spinning for the following week’s class. Won’t you join us for these fun sessions on an age-old technique?
