Learn to Spin Using a Drop Spindle

A great introduction to spinning.

New Class to be Announced Soon!

Have you always wanted to learn how to spin? Are you looking for a cost effective way to ease into spinning without the expense of a wheel? Do you have a spinning wheel but struggle with drafting your roving? Then this class is for you!


Come to Windrush Alpacas on TBD at 10 am to learn how to use a drop spindle to make your own yarn. 


Shannon McKerlie will be your instructor and will guide you through the steps to get you spinning. Shannon spins beautiful yarns on her drop spindle and is a clear and patient instructor. A drop spindle is small but you will be amazed at what you can spin on one.


The class will be held at Windrush Alpacas where you will be able to see the beautiful alpacas who will be providing your roving.


Tickets are $15 and include instruction, 2 ounces of alpaca roving to spin, and a drop spindle to take home. Class is expected to last for approximately one hour.
