Fleece Classification for Hand Spinners, Weavers, and Fiber Artists
This informative class delves into what you need to know to feel confidant when you purchase and work with a fleece. Taught by fleece classifier and spinner Ann Brezina, this class will teach you the aspects to look for when classifying a fleece, such as crimp, staple length, micron count, and luster. This class is great for hand spinners, weavers, and fiber artists who are interested in understanding what to look for in a fleece for their specific needs and better understand the various characteristics the different breeds have to offer. There will be a variety of fleeces to get a hands-on feel and easy comparisons between breeds. This is not a USDA classification class though Ann is a USDA classifier for wool and mohair, and an alpaca shearer. There will be fleeces for sale at the end of class from Ann Brazina and local fleeces from shearer John Sanchez, as well as a fleece sale from 1:30 – 3:30 that is free and open to the public.
