Fiber Prep Tool Time

 

Ewe to Yarn Series – Class #2

The yarn you spin depends in large part on how the fiber is prepared.  In this class, you will get some hands-on experience using a variety of fiber prep tools.

Beginning and experienced spinners alike can benefit from this review of pickers, flickers, hand and drum carders, combs and other tools.

Learn how and when to use each tool (and find out about some low-cost alternatives), and practice with the fiber provided, OR bring your own fiber to use a tool that you don’t own!

NOTE: Some of these tools are extremely sharp.  Therefore, we ask that only adults attend this class.
