SHEEP-TO-YARNLearn how to wash, prep, blend, and spin your own yarn from fiber!
SCHEDULE:5/20 & 5/21 | 5-8PM
Join us and learn how to wash, prep, and spin your own yarn with the fiber you prepare during class. This workshop will primarily be meeting outdoors behind the shop. During this workshop you will be in control of the entire fiber process from sheep to yarn! You will learn the skills to process and blend fiber as well as spin your own yarn on a drop spindle so it's ready-to-use for your next weaving, knitting, or crochet project. After this workshop you'll find you won't want to pass up that absolutely gorgeous fleece at the next fiber festival.
