Have you always wished to know how to make that yarn you are knitting with? I remember that feeling, over 16 years ago the spinning bug bite me.  Handspinning is an ageless tradition, one that our ancestors participated in for survival. Find a warm connection to your past as you learn a relaxing skill that you will always remember. like riding a bike. Here on the farm, our sheep produce the wool, which is shorn once a year, to keep our sheep cool and clean. The fiber from shearing is washed then carded, so the fibers are all facing the same direction. At this point the wool is ready to be spun into a soft magical yarn. requiring no electricity, just human power. In class you will work on a louete spinning wheel, guided to create your first handspun yarn, using fiber grown on our land by the cute grass munchers.  plan on three hours. all materials are included. Class is in person on the Farm
