Have you ever wanted to buy a gorgeous fleece and prep it yourself, but didn't know where to begin? In this workshop, you will learn how to look for and prep a wool fleece to spin your own yarn. This workshop includes washing and preparing (combing and carding) the fleece. At the end of the workshop you will take home clean and prepped (by you!) fleece to spin/felt/weave with at home.
