Spinning Lessons $10 an hour by Appt

Learn to Spin Alpaca fiber using huacaya rovings or a variety of sheep wool mill end rovings if I have them in stock. If you have a drop spindle and/or a wheel, bring it along. Appts should be arranged with me in advance as I'm a busy person managing my family, and 2 alpaca locations.

I can take appts for Clyde, Ohio at my home at 547 N Mulberry St, cross street is Woodland Ave, South off of Hwy 20 (McPherson Hwy).

I have been spinning alpaca since fall 2006 on a Louet DT10 wheel. I belong to the Black Swamp Spinning Guild of Northwest Ohio, have helped teach our annual Learn To Spin event held every February, and spin evenings at my farm on Fostoria Road come Sept 2012.

If local and interested, we can start a spinning group at my house in Clyde. Brush up on your spinning skills for free! Black Swamp also has a Saturday Spin In every month.

Paca Fiber to Product! Also dye my own fiber with Kool Aid and acid dyes.
 Just another Spin In!!
Pricing and Terms
My service and teaching is $10 an hour. But you will have to bring your own rovings or purchase mine at nominal cost. I am experienced on the Louet Wheels. I do not know anything about adjusting tension strings on other wheels as my wheel has a rubber tension band.

I can teach you the basics of spinning, let you practice on my wheel, show you spinning videos and point you to other resources for continuing your perfection of spinning techniques.
