Ontario Handspinning Seminar

Fleece Selection and Preparation

Donna Hancock

In this workshop, we will evaluate some raw fleeces to determine whether they are a good purchase and for what end-use. We will then do some hands-on prep and try spinning them for the end uses the class feels they are most suited for.

Workshop Description

Bring the following: Hand carders, apron, spinning wheel, and niddy noddy.
