Sue McNiven led a workshop exploring the qualities of cashmere, yak, silk, camel, angora and mohair. We were encouraged to break out of any habitual styles of spinning  to experiment with long-draw and the less common version of short draw that allows the twist to travel into the drafting triangle. Sue brought lots of interesting samples of spun fibre, including yarn made from her cashmere rabbits.
