This past weekend I was thrilled to attend Patsy Z’s Spin Control workshop. It was held at Freehaven Farm in Sc which featured a wonderful assortment of animals including Highland Cattle, sheep, goats, bunnies, llamas, horses, and alpacas. The working dogs were amazing too:>. Patsy’s workshop really did a great job of filling in the numerous holes in understanding that I had with my spinning and I feel like I am now armed with enough info to create whatever yarn I really want to use for knitting or weaving. I can’t wait for her Spinning for Weaving class hopefully this spring.
While I was there I was able to pick up 2 ozs of Jacob wool from sheep from the farm. I had a lot of fun spinning it and am thinking of getting some more. I also had a blast with romney from Whistlestop Farm in Vale, NC. I am currently working on scouring a fleece from Whistlestop Farm that is chocolate laced with silver and is just lovely.
