Spinning Spring Training

With the Tour de Fleece just around the corner and Spinzilla returning this fall, spring is a great time to get back into spinning shape! I'm not sure if you caught this video on YouTube just yet (plus: see if you can spot me!), but Spinzilla promises to be bigger and better than won't want to miss out!

I'm excited to be the captain for #TeamLouet once more, and I'm hoping to see some familiar faces on #TeamLouet later this year. What better way to level up our spinning skills (and welcome spinners of all skills to join our ranks, too) than a fun series of challenges to get spinning this spring. I hope you'll join me for a little spring training, sponsored by Louet and The Woolery!

We'll be taking to our spindles and wheels on April 1, 2014 - see you then!

Yes, for now we are joining forces in the name of spinning, although at some point you will have to declare your loyalty to #TeamLouet or #TeamWoolery. For now, let's enjoy a little friendly competition to tackle monthly challenges and win great prizes along the way. Below are our suggested monthly challenges to guide you along the way (note: there are different prizes for those of you participating in the Woolery Ravelry group, but the challenges remain the same!). We look forward to seeing your progress each month in either the Louet Ravelry group or Woolery Ravelry group - and yes, you can double-dip to be eligible for prize drawings in both groups, too!


  1. This sounds like fun Stefanie. I am hoping to spin again for Team Louet this year. I am in the midst of dying and spinning experiments with some lovely superwash merino. I also want to check out some of my old fibre stash I have some very nice soft gray which is dyed and ready to card and some quarter to half Cheviot ready to card.I am thinking of what I can use in Oct. and how to spin and use them. I am limited to wool because of the allergy problems I developed over the years with the other fibres (both plant and animal. Because of that, I can't participate in the June challenge. I look forward to other challenges and will participate when I can.

    1. We would love to have you spin with us whenever you can!!
