Taste of... Fiber Preparation

from 20.00

Learn how to prepare washed fleece for spinning or felting. We’ll work with combs and hand cards to produce rolags or sliver and the drum carder to provide batts or roving. From dyed fibers we can create art bats for spinning unique rustic yarns. We can discuss what preparation is best for different kinds of projects. We will also make a quick diz for creating roving.
