Learn to spin with Alpacas!

Join us on Saturday 23rd March 2024 for this brand new workshop, given by Trish Kerr of Irish Alpaca Yarns!

and spinning opens up endless possibilities to experiment with colours and textures to make your own unique yarn.

About
This course will introduce you to the ancient tradition of hand spinning. You will work with alpaca fibre, a beautifully soft, strong natural fibre that makes wonderful yarn for either knitting or weaving.

Alpaca fleece is a lovely fibre to work with – you will learn how to assess a good alpaca fleece and the correct carding technique to suit the fleece and type of yarn you want to produce.

Timings
The day runs from 10am – 4pm and you are welcome to take breaks as you wish. Lunch will also be provided by the farm as part of this workshop.

This course is excellent for beginners and experienced spinners alike, as each student is able to access any guidance they may need throughout the workshop.

All materials and tools supplied.
