You’re a spinner or a spinner wannabe who has taken (or will be taking) the plunge and purchased your first fleece and wants to know how to process it, or you’ve tried to process a fleece and had results that you are less than pleased with. This is the class for you. We’ll look at a fleece, talk about skirting, soaking, washing, picking, and carding or combing, plus get hands-on experience with each process. Bring a fleece with you if you’ve just bought one or have one you’d like looked at, and we’ll give you advice and help with it!
Students should bring: Hand cards or combs if you have them
