In this workshop participants will be invited to go down the proverbial rabbit hole and learn about angora fiber and the rabbits that grow it.
Students will be able to meet living representatives and learn about their care. They will also be able to evaluate examples of angora fiber and determine the best use for each grade of wool. Students will be able to observe or participate in a guided spinning exercise; spinning from the cloud and a selection of carded and combed wool. Angora fiber samples and yarn spun by students will be ready to take home at the end of class.
Skill Level Required: Students should have a good working relationship with their wheel and be capable of spinning a consistent single.
Spinning wheel for those that would like to spin. Hand spindles will be available for anyone to use.
