Farm to Fashion Workshops: Spinning for Beginners
Join the Knitty Gritty for a guided tour of Rainbow Forest Acres Alpaca Farm followed by a half day spinning workshop on the farms grounds.
Learn about the qualities of alpaca fleece, the processes taken to ready it for spinning and meet the alpaca's themselves on a guided tour from farm owner Barbara Eslake.
Then sit down with Renate Bareham and learn to spin using both the drop spindle method and spinning wheel, taking away with you a skein of hand spun yarn.
Follow up this lesson with our other farm to fashion workshops on hand dying and garment design, to really see your project from start to finish.
