Lots of ideas, but need help pulling them together? If you’ve accumulated yarn and locks, but can’t seem to center on a cohesive plan, we’ll work it out. (We do not pass judgement or talk out of class about just how much you have!).
Unique yarns available straight from the shepherd don’t always come with a ball band and instructions. Confused about compatibility? Bring any materials and/or ideas to class and we’ll work out a plan – attributes associated with various types of fiber, gauge in knitting or sett in weaving, which ones are compatible, are they stretchy, inelastic, best for outerwear or next to the skin? We’ll discuss the characteristics of various protein fibers: e.g. different types of sheep, alpacas, mohair, angora etc..
We’ll check out your selections, can talk about their qualities and best uses, and plan some possibilities. Spinners, crocheters, weavers, and wannabees welcome!
