Sheep Breed specific Knitting at Long Way Homestead

Each breed of sheep produces a distinct type of wool for knitting and crochet.  Understanding the qualities and characteristics of these breeds will inform and accentuate your knitting. Texture, colourwork, cables and drape are all affected by the unique wool breeds.

This workshop will give a brief overview of some accessible single-breed wools and the variety they can offer to your knitting.  We will also briefly explore the history and tradition of these single-breed wools.  This workshop is hands on, you will be able to touch, and experiment with breeds in their different forms (raw, carded, spun).

Participants will take home 150g of a variety of breed-specific yarn.

Organized in conjunction with Pembina Fibreshed.

Workshop will be held in the studio at Long Way Homestead. 51077 MUN 41 E. Ste. Genevieve, MB

Cost: $50
