Sheep to Scarf
Workshop Instructor: Joan Beck & Jessica Faulhaber

How does that fluffy stuff become something to wear? Here is your opportunity to find out! In the course of five days, (mornings only), we will wash and card fine wool, spin it into yarn, dye the yarn using either natural dyes or acid dyes (and learn about the differences between those two), and finish up with basic crochet stitches, to turn that yarn into something beautiful to wear.
