JC11 Spinning Bubble Crepe Yarn
with Sarah Anderson
Bubble Crepe is often the first yarn people pick up when my yarn library is on display. I can’t tell you how often I’ve heard, “I want to make this one!” Creating this fascinating variation of crepe yarn requires spinning singles with both S and Z twists. It also requires spinning both thin and consistently thick singles. A lot of learning goes into making Bubble Crepe but it’s worth it and you can do it! Skill Level: Students should be able to spin a continuous yarn and be comfortable with their equipment. Students should bring: Spinning wheel in working order, lazy kate and 3 bobbins.
