A class specifically to study the wool of different sheep breeds and their characteristics as they apply to spinning (and more) made for a wonderful woolly week. As always, instructor Deb Jones brought a wide variety of wools and other fibers for use in class.
Some of the spikiest of tools are used for carding, combing and blending the softest of wools.
Putting the fibers to work, the spinners had their wheels in motion, interspersed occasionally with faraway looks, contemplating which blends to combine next.
Swooning over all the wools and yarns from class!
Cindy R. shared her “Sievers Story” with us: “What a wonderful experience. The bunk house was fun and the class was out of this world. Deb Jones from The Fiber Garden in Black River Falls, WI is the best that is out there. Her patience, knowledge and giving is more than is expected. Wow! What fun and all we learned cannot even be put down on paper. I promise this will be my comeback place.”
For this and for all the other Sievers flocks, we will leave the gate open!
