Working with Wool: How to Skirt a Fleece and Prepare Wool for Washing

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to "skirt" a fleece (removing the unwanted sections of the fleece) and then prepare the wool for washing.  The workshop will include a demonstration of skirting as well as hands on working with wool.  The wool is from a variety of heritage breeds of sheep and has a range of natural colors.  There will be ample time for discussion of sheep, wool, local resources and farming life.

The workshop is $25 which includes a healthy, farm-fresh lunch and gloves.  Space is limited.  Appropriate for ages 12 and older.
