Fiber Blending
January 24, 2012, 7:30 pm
Wolbach Farm, 18 Wolbach Rd., Sudbury, MA
Join us to investigate blending wool, silk, alpaca, and mohair. We will discuss the reasons for blending and what each fiber brings to the blend, then get down to trying some out for ourselves. Bring your enthusiasm, your wheel or spindle, hand cards, including extras to share if you have them. The BASD drum carder will also be available. Bring a fiber-blended show and tell, if you'd like, also. There will be a $2 materials fee for the fiber and handout.
For those participating in the alpaca blending swap, bring your spun yarn for the second portion of the swap. We will put our labeled yarn back in the swap bag and draw again for the yarn-to-finished-object portion of the swap.
