Sheep to Sweater – Cleaning/carding workshop

July 3, 2011

Some of you may remember the post from our day at the fantastic Sheep Shearing Festival at Maplewood Farms, and some of you actually got to be there and witness the sheep shearing!  As promised we are continuing our journey as we take fleece from a sheep, CLEAN it, CARD it, SPIN it and then knit it!

Cleaning & Carding workshop

Saturday, July 9th

1:00 – 3:00pm

$10.00

You will be getting your hands dirty, as we learn how to wash wool – and then a demonstration on how to card the fibre once its been cleaned and dried. No registration necessary – wear some clothes that can get wet (and a little dirty)!
