Saturday AM: Yak and Company with Judith MacKenzie
Instructor: Judith MacKenzie
Yaks have a mysterious past and a very long history. Of all the animals we have domesticated, yaks are one of the oldest, their partnership with us going back to the Stone Age some 10,000 years ago. Yaks have beautiful fiber, and luckily for us, it has recently become available for handspinners. In this class, we’ll spin pure yak-down fibers, prepared top and some beautiful blends, dyed and undyed.
Skill Level: Beginner challenge and up; must be able to spin a continuous thread.
- A working wheel and all its parts; any other spinning accessories you prefer to use
- Class fee includes a $15 materials fee for beautiful fiber
