Handspinning is an ancient craft, once industrial, which is enjoyed today as a satisfying and rewarding hobby. Most people feel that spinning is very therapeutic and furthermore there is an end product to show for their endeavours. Spinning tuition is offered for individuals or small groups, all necessary equipment including wool and fleece is provided. Hand spinning is ideal for anyone interested in traditional arts and crafts, or is looking to learn a new hobby that is both creative and relaxing. The intention is to explain the history and development of spinning, the different types of wheels and sundry equipment. Basic and luxury fibres are explained, and the fleece used to demonstrate and practise is from my flocks of Shetland sheep (in a wide range of natural colours), the Angora Goats (Mohair) and the Alpacas. Handspun yarn as available or to order, all in natural colours. All fibre used is produced at Sandyacre to ethical standards and avoiding the use of chemicals.
