    Working from Fleece

    In this fibre prep course taught by Kim McKenna, we take a look at the difference between woollen and worsted yarn. We'll walk through the equipment for carding and combing clean, scoured fibre, teaching you how to prepare combed sliver and roving as well as carded roving and rolags. Also learn how to finish your handspun, where you might find a few surprises when you sample the different methods presented. 

    In the course lessons, you will also learn Kim's small batch scouring method, which Kim uses when working with medium fleeces—fleeces with crimp between 6 to 10 crimps per inch. The other scouring method taught is one reserved for those very special, very fine fleeces; ones worth the extra work involved in scouring the fleece lock-by-lock.
