Yarns with long color changes that shift slowly from one end of the skein to the other are a great spinner's challenge. There are many ways to design a gradient handspun yarn without using a dyepot. Join us as we explore five different methods for keeping colors distinct using painted tops, dyed batts, and a few blending tricks. 

Participant to bring:
Several spindles or a spinning wheel in good working condition, and spinning accessories you typically use.
