From Fiber to Yarn [F-18-31]
|Classes:||1 Session 1.5 hours|
|Dates:||Fri 10:30 AM 09/28|
This is a demonstration class showing how multiple fibers are processed by hand into handcrafted yarn. Fibers such as wool and alpaca will be available in raw form and through demonstration (e.g. hand carding, drum carding) will be transformed into roving and spun into yarn. A brief history of different types of fibers and their uses will also be discussed.
Dayna Lancaster was raised in Canton, NY and after retiring, has moved home to a farm in Hermon. She and her husband care for 10 alpacas, 2 horses, multiple chickens and Hank, the golden retriever. Dayna learned how to spin assorted fibers into yarn several years ago and currently uses the fiber from her alpacas to create luxurious yarn.
