Wool 101: Sheep to Sweater Workshop
Join us on Wednesday, January 23 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm to get acquainted with the unusual wool produced within 150 miles or less of ImagiKnit, hands on!
Stephany Wilkes, certified sheep shearer, wool classer and author of Raw Material: Working Wool in the West, will relate the hidden story of how wool moves from sheep to sweater!
She’ll have raw wool samples to illustrate crimp, color, length, strength and fineness.
The workshop will cover different breeds of sheep (with a focus on California sheep and wool) and how characteristics of wool are reflected in locally made yarn. Participants will learn how to class and grade wool samples.
The cost of the workshop Is $35. Bring your knitting and join us for a fun evening and learn about the fiber that we all love so much!
