About the Event

Ever walk through the fleece sale at the local Fiber Festival and think “this fleece is GORGEOUS – and so CHEAP! I should process it myself!” only to lose your nerve and walk away because HOW do you do that?? Then this class is for you! We will talk about how to choose a great fleece – things to look for when selecting your next fiber adventure. We will discuss flaws that can be fixed and deal-breakers, then we’ll do it ourselves! 4 oz of raw fleece will be provided for hands-on experience. We will cover all the steps from dirty, raw fleece to ready to prepare to spin. WE will also discuss the best methods for preparing the clean fleece for spinning, including flicking, spinning from the locks, carding and combing. 

Materials Fee = $20.  Please bring (or arrange to borrow), basic fiber prep equipment including hand cards, combs, flicker, etc. Please wear old clothes – something you don’t mind getting wet or dirty.
