Well prepared fibers spin easily into beautiful yarns. This class covers both drum-carding and hand held combing of fine, medium, and coarse wools; color blending; luxury fiber preparation; and separation of guard hair from undercoat. We will also spin the carded and combed preparations so that we can view the difference between woolen and worsted yarns. This class will also help you have a greater understanding of all types of fibers and their properties. Must be able to spin and ply on either a drop spindle or wheel. Bring a wheel or spindle or rent one for the day from the shop.
