Description
Come play with techniques for getting loose wool fibers to join together, starting with carded wool roving (wool prepared for spinning into yarn) and commercial wool yarn. You'll get hands-on experience with "dry" processes such as needle felting to attach wool bits together and "wet" processes for fulling the loose wool into a cohesive object. We'll also felt wool yarn into wool fabric, etc. Alpaca roving available to those with lanolin allergies.
