Yarnitecture: Building Exactly The Yarn You Want

August 2, 2020 – August 8, 2020

Jillian Moreno

This workshop will provide students the tools they need to spin an intentional yarn and learn the why’s and how’s of yarn construction. Through sampling, participants can make choices in fiber and spinning techniques and create yarns consistent in size, draft and ply and explore techniques for spinning color without dyeing. Working with solid colors and hand painted braids, students will mix, blend and manipulate color and color flow to create yarns both unique and beautiful. At week’s end, you will spin an intentional yarn for a specific project to gain confidence in spinning and mixing color. Adventurous beginners who can make a continuous yarn will dive deeper into spinning basics, while more experienced spinners will experiment beyond the yarns they have been making. Open to all skill levels.


Jillian Moreno lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan and is the author of the best-selling book Yarnitecture: A Knitter’s Guide to Spinning: Building Exactly the Yarn You Want. As a writer and teacher, she is passionate about exploring the structure of yarn and color, and using them in an intentional way in knitting, stitching and weaving. Moreno encourages her students and readers to feel confidence and joy in their work.
