Class Title: Thrums Are Fun!

Teacher: Jeri-Robinson Lawrence and Irina Lawrence   

Class Length: 3 hours

Class Fee: $40.00

Class Day/Time: Sunday, 9:00 am to 12:00 noon

Class Description:

Thrums are the perfect way to add warmth and density to your mittens, hats and even socks. Using strips of wool roving, thrumming adds a lovely pillow-like layer to your knit fabric. Over time the wool felts down and becomes extra warm! Let Jeri and Irina guide you in the art of thrumming and leave with the beginning of a fabulous pair of thrummed mittens that you can easily complete at home! Get ready for next winter with a new technique to make all of your accessories a little warmer and cozier.
