Hilltop Spinners hold spin-in

April 20, 2013

The Hilltop Spinners recently met at the WCA Home in Fredonia for a spinning demonstration in the activity room. President Nanette Knappenberger of Westfield welcomed all to the meeting, and discussed spinning techniques with those who visited the group. It is the "twist" of the fleece which makes the yarn and gives it strength. The process includes shearing the sheep, combing the wool so that all fibers are going in one direction and then spinning it. Coloring the wool is a dying process, and includes many kinds of natural dyes, such as walnuts, plants and flowers.
