Half day class, offered once
Thursday, April 21st
Double-coated fleeces have everything; a different fiber for every occasion! They’re the holy grail of spinning, if you can unlock the secret of how to separate them. In this class, we will look at how to efficiently separate the softer undercoat from the coarser outer coat. We’ll have the opportunity to sample different breeds and different tools. Which tools work best: carders, combs or your bare hands? You’ll have to try them and decide for yourself!
Materials fee: $25 includes fiber to spin during the class. We will have access to 3-5 different breeds/fleeces to sample during the class.
Level:This is an intermediate course. Students should come to the class with a basic understanding of how to card or comb fiber, spin singles, and ply.
