Sheep are beautifully diverse around the world and give us endless possibilities for knitting, weaving, embroidering and more! You will learn to prepare wool for spinning and designing your own handspun yarns. You will also create sample textiles from the wool of more than a dozen different breeds of sheep, work on a variety of small projects and gain experience with wool durability, resilience and drape. By the end of the class you will have a spinner's notebook bursting with locks, handspun yarns and swatches of your own handmade cloth.
