Shelia January

3 hour workshop: Saturday 9-12


We will work with various types of wool and animal fibers, and will make bouclé yarns using several spinning techniques. The yarns will be made using wool and mohair fibers, and will utilize binder threads of various types. The resulting yarns will be worsted to bulky weight and will be useful for knitting, crocheting and weaving.
