Sheep to Yarn, on the Cheap

Sheep to Yarn, on the Cheap
With Greg Cotton
Thursdays, September 14, 21, and 28 and October 5, 7-9 pm
$100, plus supplies kit ($45)


Ever been intrigued by the idea of spinning your own yarn? Ever wonder how wool right off the sheep is transformed into beautiful yarn for knitting or weaving? Ever been unsure if you want to purchase spinning equipment before you know if you will enjoy the process?
In this class, we'll start with gorgeous wool directly off the sheep. We'll wash the wool, dye it, comb it, and spin it, and all on the cheap...we'll use tools that we'll make or purchase at very little cost. By the end of the class you'll have yarn that is like no other in the world...yarn that is totally your own!
