Cables Under Construction
Materials fee: $25 (USD) for handout and rovings
Cables are designed using variations in plying. You can use the construction to produce strong yarns from delicate fibers or puffy and warm abrasion resistant yarns. It is also a great technique to blend colors using two colors or as many as you have plies. You can put fluffy and thin yarns together for textured effects. Cables require more time from the spinner, in both the spinning of the single and the plying together in different combinations. You can plan ahead using a pencil and paper to design beautiful balanced yarns that will perform like you want them to.
