There are two things I love about sheep – their wool and their cheese!
Come explore both in this spinning and snacking class. We’ll sample five different commercially prepared fibers and fiber blends that might get overlooked, breeds that are considered down or down-like, like Southdown, Clun Forest, Oxford , and Tunis. We’ll talk spinning how-tos, do you spin them woolen or worsted? How to spin them fine and how to spin them fat, and of course discuss beautiful things to make with them.
I did mention sheep cheese right? In between spinning we will nibble several sheep cheeses. You’ll learn about how sheep and cow milk cheese differ and what makes sheep cheese special. These will be different cheeses than we sampled last year.
I think you will be happily surprised by the variety in flavor and texture of sheep cheeses and their tasty accompaniments.
Yes, if you’d like to bring wine or beer to this class, you may.
