Saturday PM: Sheep to Skein – How Wool Becomes Yarn


Instructor: Clara Parkes

Join Clara in a three-hour journey through all the steps that wool must take on its way from farm to needles. Armed with plenty of physical examples for us to fondle, I’ll explain the why and how and even the who of each step. We’ll talk about not only the mechanics of making yarn but also how mills work and all the other little decisions that go into a good skein of yarn. Whether you’re thinking of manufacturing yarn yourself or just want to better appreciate how it gets to us, this class will provide that greater understanding. Note: This is not a hand spinning class.
