CORESPINNING 101 (Free Class)

If you are teaching yourself how to spin yarn online, here is my free instructional video covering the basics of spinning a corespun yarn. In this video you will learn about many of the different types of fiber that I use in my CORESPUN series, and how to spin each type. We will also cover troubleshooting and tips for how to prevent and fix over-twisting, and how to prevent and repair broken under-twisted yarn.
