Class at New York Sheep & Wool - Fiber Prep with Robin Russo
The Fiber Prep class will explore the use of both carding and combing to prepare fibers. It is an opportunity to play with a variety of wool types, try some blending, dehair a doublecoated fleece and clean up a dirty fleece. As we spin our prepped fiber, we will gain a better understanding of the techniques that may be used to create woolen or worsted yarns. We will also explore the use of some of the luxury fibers and how best to blend them with wool. All equipment is provided except your spinning wheel or drop spindle.
Class at New York Sheep & Wool- Goat Fiber with Robin Russo
The Goat Class is a wonderful introduction to these luxury fibers and their various properties. You will have an opportunity to fully explore each of 4 different types of goat fiber: Cashmere, cashgora, pygora and angora. We will do a little fiber prep, spin from some commercially prepared fibers and try a little blending with wool. All you need to bring is a spinning wheel or drop spindle. The NYSW is a great opportunity to purchase goat fibers from some of the best breeders in the country!
