Yarn & Fiber Characteristics
This hands-on class will help participants to understand how the properties of fiber become the properties of yarn and how those properties affect the products we make, whether we spin, knit, weave or felt.   We will first explore the world of fibers:  where they come from and how they grow and then handle the fibers and examine their characteristics under magnification.   Finally, we will dissect yarns to see how fiber, twist and ply affect the look, feel and durability of the products we ultimately knit, or weave.
