Description: Sheep around the world are beautifully diverse. Join us for an introduction to a range of sheep breeds and the characteristics of their wool. You will have a chance to handle fleeces and yarns from primitive, longwool, down-type, medium, and finewool sheep. Kate will offer tips on choosing the right wool type for your next project and resources for finding breed-specific fibers. Leave class with a notebook of the breeds covered in class and a better understanding of how wool type impacts the durability, resilience, and drape of your textiles. 

Bring your spindle or wheel, knitting needles or crochet hook, to sample fibers and yarns. This workshop is open to knitters, crocheters, and spinners alike.

Homework: None

Tools Needed: A range of knitting needle or crochet hook sizes. Supplies for spinners: Several spindles or a spinning wheel and its parts; handcards (some will be available to borrow.)
