NCS Yellow Bombyx and 50/50 Wool/Silk Blend Spinning Workshop
In this workshop you will be provided with 100 grams each of NCS Yellow Bombyx and a 50/50 blend of Silk and Merino sliver which has been dyed in-house.
The NCS Yellow silk is a strain of Bombyx mori silkworms who spin yellow, not white, cocoons. The cocoons are a bright yellow. Once degummed, to prepare the fibre for spinning, the color that remains is a lovely soft yellow reminiscent of moonlight.
The wool/silk blend we have chosen for you to work with is lustrous, silky and soft. Each fibre in this blend has something different to offer to your finished handspun. The Merino helps with loft while the silk lends drape, lustre, strength and a sumptuous soft silky hand.
The registration fee for the workshop is $106. You can register through Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/yellow-ncs-bombyx-and-woolblend-spinning-workshop-tickets-124490916683
