Fiber Folks Meeting – Processing Fleece

At today’s meeting, we learned about processing fleeces.

We were introduced to a box picker,

 

 

 

five-pitch and one-pitch combs,

 

 

 

 

drum carder,

 

 

 

diz,

 

 

 

 

and shown how to use each one.

Several members brought different fleeces from different breeds of sheep to the meeting for samples of fine wool, multi-colored wool, locks of wool.

Experienced members demonstrated how to use the tools on different kinds of wool, and then let less experienced members try out the tools.

For show and tell, members shared weaving projects, knitting projects, lucent cording, and spinning projects.
