There is such a wide variation in the world of sheep and wool. The climate they live in, their diet, and breeding can all determine the various qualities of wool. Even within the same breed there can be large differences (even in the same fleece)!

Wool Class with Mary Reichert

This class will be a deep dive into the world of wool. We’ll especially explore wool from a felt-makers point of view, looking into which is best for the project you have in mind, and learn the felt-making process by creating a sample book of felts from various wools.

We will also do some skirting, washing and carding together so you know how to prepare that raw fleece once you’ve bought it!

If you have some raw wool you’d like to work on in class, please wash it beforehand.
