This workshop is for fiber folks that have some or very little experience in one or more of the fiber processes.
In this class we will take another journey to discover the path the alpaca fleece will travel from the alpaca, after shearing day, all the way through the processing steps to become a scarf. Many of you will have experience in some of these processes. This workshop will pull the processes all together and encourage you to participate in a group of like minded fiber folks.
A special class called “Let’s Grow another Alpaca Scarf – Journey 2”
You will have the opportunity to purchase a 2022 alpaca fleece from one of our very special alpacas and at a 20% discount. Or you can preorder a fleece from shearing day which will be Sunday, May 7th you will receive the 2nds and 3rds from that alpaca at no extra cost.
Then we will process your fleece in class with hands on experience all the way to knitting the scarf. Some experience is expected and you will need to bring your motivation to share, OH and plan to have fun.
Here’s what we will do in this class:
*First class we will adopt an alpaca. That means you will visit with your alpaca at the beginning of each class. You can take pictures, ask questions, learn to halter and walk it, and more. Then on the first session you will purchase the fleece from your adopted alpaca. We will process the fleece together, then make yarn to knit your scarf. Sound like fun?
