Spin with Ewe: Delicious Dual Coats (Virtual) 11-20-2022
Come on a journey with us as we explore the amazing qualities of dual-coated wool! Learn about the different sheep that are dual coated and what their fiber qualities are like, as well as how to spin them with a garment in mind. In this class, we will discuss the different breeds, their wool, and how the wool reacts when spun using different techniques. We will spin a lovely roving flight that explores the different breeds and spinners will have the opportunity to pull apart the two coats and spin each one individually. During this activity, we will discuss why people have done this and what would have been made from the two parts. This class will be a fun opportunity to learn more about the different dual-coated sheep while taking your spinning and appreciation for dual coats to a new level.
This class will be held virtually via zoom from 5-8pm CST. The roving flight will be mailed to you prior to the class.
