Should you comb or card your wool? Presented by Heather Robinson.
Are you new to processing a washed wool fleece? Want to know what the difference is between carding or combing your wool? This class will touch base on the difference between the two, what is stable length and how to properly card or comb your wool. 13 different breeds will be talked about on processing the fleece. If you have a clean fleece and wool combs or carders, please feel free to bring them.
