April 11 Program Notes

Our next program on April 11, 2010 will feature fleece preparation by combing. Please bring any combs you have, any diz or other tools you use. If you have top you prepared yourself that would be great to see.

I've also been asked to present hackling. While that is not a method of preparing washed fleece to spin, but rather more a method of blending prepared wool, it is similar enough to combing that we will cover if we have time. If you have a hackle please bring it!

Here are three interesting hackling links:

Hell Chick, Making Stuff

A fascinating DIY project from Yarn Zombie

Color Blending by Stitching for Sanity

And this one is blending taken to the extreme!

There is also LOTS of information in Color in Spinning by Deb Menz.

See you there!
