Wool Processing for Spinning and Felting

February 16 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Event Navigation

This class will cover selecting a fleece, fiber preparation for washing, fiber washing, and preparation of washed and dried fiber for spinning using a drum carder, hand cards, and combs.  You’ll also learn how to choose a preparation method for many types of fiber. This class is completely hands-on from start to finish. By the end, you’ll understand why preparing their own fiber is a passion for many spinners. You’ll leave with lots of fiber; some still needing drying time and the rest ready to spin.

One four hour class with a 30-minute break half-way through.  $125

Instructor:  Melanie Perkins
