December 10 Meeting
Angora fiber is soft, warm, and quite lightweight, but has a reputation for being harder to spin than other fibers. And unlike wool, angora has no memory. Chris Woolybuns will teach techniques and tips on how to spin and blend angora. We will work with pure angora and merino wool. blending for a variety of angora percentages. Chris will have a set of hand cards, combs, and a drum carder available to try, but bring your own if you have them.
Fiber fee $20.00
