Experiencing Animal Fibers
28097 Goodview Dr
Blue Face Leicester, Merino, Gotland, Huacaya – if you don’t know what these words mean, you will after this class! Get ready to learn all about animal fibers. We’ll spend the morning talking about what animals grow the fibers, how the fibers are processed, and what we do with them. You’ll be able to touch and see fiber samples from several different animals including sheep, alpacas, and angora rabbits, all spun and processed by Tori. The afternoon will be spent on a field trip to Rockie Top Acres, where you’ll get a hands-on experience with the local family farm’s alpacas. Preregistration required.
