xx-Sold Out-xx SP17 Sheep! Spinning Columbia with Judith MacKenzie
Thursday, April 30 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Turf Valley – Belmont Room
This amazing sheep is one of the backbones of the wool industry in America and a positive joy for any handspinner. It is truly an American sheep, bred for the harsh weather of the western range lands. The Columbia is one of the first domestic sheep breeds developed in the United States. A very successful cross between a Rambouillet ewe and a Lincoln ram, the fleece is medium- fine, with an amazing unforgettable hand. This is one Judith’s personal favorites to spin. Skill level: Advanced beginner, intermediate, and expert. Maximum number of students: 15. Students should bring: Working spinning wheel and all of its parts, even the ones you’ve never used. Extra bobbins, niddy noddy, lazy kate, measuring tape, scissors and handcards. Knitting needles in a range that you like to knit with.
