Join us to learn about thrumming- the fascinating technique from Labrador and Newfoundland that creates a bed of beautiful roving to create cozy slippers to stave off the end of Winter.

$125 plus materials

Please call (604-874-9665) or stop by the shop to register.

Materials:

1-2 skeins Quince & Co. Osprey- yardage varies per size.

Between 1 and 4oz / 30 and 115g fibre for thrums. The exact amount required will depend on the fibre used and the amount in each thrum so it’s difficult to give a more precise quantity. I recommend the June Cashmere roving. One pack of four should be sufficient for most sizes.

You can also use one ball of Custom Woolen Mills Roving or custom wooden mills cream roving.

4.5 mm needles in either double-pointed needles, 24" and 16" circulars or 40" for magic loop and a copy of Cadeautje.
