Spinning your own yarn opens up endless possibilities to experiment with colours, textures and materials to make your own unique yarn.

This course will introduce you to working with alpaca fibre, a beautifully soft, strong fibre that makes wonderful yarn for either knitting or weaving. 


 We breed for colour and fineness in our herd and have many varied fleeces for you to choose from. You will learn how to assess a good alpaca fleece and the correct carding technique to suit the fleece and type of yarn you want to produce.



Our spinning groups are limited to a maximum of 3, making this course excellent for beginners as each student is able to access any guidance they may need.


 We will be working in the relaxed atmosphere of our fondly named 'Kurt the Yurt', our traditional Mongolian yurt which lends itself naturally to this ancient and relaxing craft.


Timing 10am - 4pm

Cost: £40 per person


Tea, coffee and herbal teas are provided but please bring your own packed lunch.
