Dyeing and teaching

I dyed a fleece:

I bought several Finn x Texel fleeces to use in spinning classes. The wool is coarser than pure Finn, and easier to prepare and spin. This one I’ll spin myself. The bright colours I’ll use in a sweater for my granddaughter, the pale red and green in socks.

The spindling class last weekend was great fun! Seven ladies and a young lad got a first glimpse of the wonderful world of spindles. I love the new crafters house at Stundars. It’s built and decorated with the great skills you can expect from dedicated crafters. As always when teaching, I forget to take pics in class. I took this one, though:

I showed my spinning wheels also, as an introduction to an upcoming wheel spinning class in the autumn.

    What nice bright colors in your dyed wools providing fun for beginning spinners. And what an amazing building to teach in. Looks very sturdy, functional and beautiful. Enjoy your teaching!!!!
