Christine Rice - Handspinner

Chris Rice is a hand spinner, here's a little bit from Chris about her work:

" I have been hand spinning for many years and use many types of wool but much prefer to use fleece straight from the sheep. I source these from local farms as far as possible and wash, card, comb, dye and spin my yarns at home.

To spin, I use my English handmade oak wooden spinning wheel which is by far my favourite, although I do own many spinning wheels of various kinds.

Having spent my entire working life in the Food industry, I now find much enjoyment in working with lovely unique yarns, creating many different styles of yarn and handspun items."
