We have drop spindle kits from Kromski at the shop, which include a drop spindle, a small niddy noddy (the thing you use to make a skein of yarn after you've spun it) and just enough merino fiber to get you started! You'll get 10% off the drop spindle kit once you're signed up for class! 

Once you get comfortable you'll want to try out our Hand Dyed Diva spinning fiber! It is DELICIOUS!

Here's what you'll need:

DROP SPINDLE:  We will be working with a top whorl spindle.  You can take advantage of the 10% off discount and get your kit at Cheers To Ewe, or bring your own top whorl spindle.  Give us a shout and we'll handle it for you!

BEACH TOWEL: Or a towel you don't mind putting on the floor!  There is some dropping involved in learning to use a drop spindle....  So, bring a towel so your spindle has a soft place to land.

FIBER:  We will be using the merino included in kits if you buy a kit - or you need to have at least two ounces of long staple fiber like Merino.  Hand Dyed Diva has fiber! You can definitely try that!  Please no plant fiber or any short staple fiber for this class.

Please bring your notion bag to classes.
