Do you wish to learn to spin your yarn by spindle? Then you have the opportunity to join our course in hand-spun threads by a spindle.
The class takes place in a cosy setting at our wool shop at Hjelteryggen, 20 minutes from Bergen city centre.
You will learn how to spin with a spindle, and you will also learn how to prepare the wool by hand carding.
We primarily use pre-carded wool, which we have carded in advance for you to have plenty of time to spin yarn and finish a full skein.
The instructor is the Vaid founder, who will quickly teach you how to spin on at home.
The course aims at both beginners and experienced participants.
There will be a maximum of four participants on the course to ensure each participant's quality of training.
The day is a 1-day course and an inspiration day, where you get a taste of spinning your yarn with a spindle.
The day offers:
- knowledge of different wool and sheep breeds
- fibre handling
- carding of wool
- how to hand spin wool
- how to make 2-plied yarn
The focus is on the skills and not the amount of yarn you can bring home.
You borrow the needed equipment on the course.
We use wool from a herd of Old Norse sheep that grazes in the sea gap in Øygarden. The yarn is soft and delicate, contains a lot of lanolin and provides durable thread.
The price includes:
- Refreshments with coffee, tea and snacks.
- One full skein of yarn.
- Fibrous material used during the day.
- Course booklet so you can continue to spin on at home.
