From Fleece to Yarn



I am running a two day workshop at Markree Castle Hotel,  Co. Sligo on March 9th and 10th.   This will be a hands on and demonstration of  how to get a fleece from its smelly dirty state to a wearable yarn or fibre ready to felt.

It will include washing, dying,  using both natural and synthetic dyes, carding and spinning wool.   Participants are welcome to bring a small amount of their own fleece and any spinning equipment they own if they wish.

The cost is €150 and this will include tea/coffee, lunch on both days and any materials needed.
 Hopefully at the end of the weekend you will go home with a little washed fibre,   some hand spun yarn, some hand dyed yarn and lots of new ideas and enthusiasm.
