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.
