Wednesday, April 10th – Half Day Class
A flick carder is a fiber preparation tool that is used to open up locks of wool (either washed or unwashed) to make them ready for your next step. A flick carder looks rather like a small hand card. They come in “ones”, not in pairs. These small, simple tools can be used to prepare a variety of fleeces for spinning a variety of yarns. We will practice a few different techniques for using this tool, and we will use similar devices for getting the same effect. Then we will spin some smooth and some textured yarns from flick carded locks.
Materials Fee: $12
Level: Beginner plus: can spin a single and ply
