Pembina Fibreshed: Spinning Alpaca, Mohair and Silk Workshop
May 12 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Expand your spinning knowledge beyond sheep’s wool in this hands-on class. Bring your wheel or spindle and sample several different types of fibre: alpaca, mohair, silk and combinations. Experiment with ways to process, blend and spin these types of fibre. This class comes with an ample goody bag; you’ll have a few ounces of several different fibres to take home and continue learning after the class is over. You must be able to spin to take this class.

Students please bring: spinning wheel or spindle, and a favourite processing tool, if you have one: a flick carder, hand cards or portable combs. The instructor will also bring processing tools so we can experiment with blending processed roving.
