Follow one fleece through the various stages of prep: skirting, washing, dyeing, picking, carding, combing, and blending. Learn different ways to turn your fiber into solid or multi-colored roving, top or batts. Hand cards and combs, a blending board, drum carder, and hackles will be demonstrated and available for use. Feel free to bring your own equipment. Each participant will receive a “mini fleece” and enough know-how to turn it into a small project. Other various fibers will be on hand for blending and practice.

Participants Should Bring: No equipment necessary. Students may bring their own hand cards, hand combs, blending boards, or any other fiber prep equipment but it’s not required.
