Know Your Wool

with Deborah Robson
Get the wool truth! This free mini-class with Deborah Robson gives you a nuanced understanding of different fibers and the best use for each type of wool.

Don't lose sleep over the characteristics of sheep; instead, get breed and fiber knowledge you can count on in Know Your Wool. In this free mini-class Deborah, co-author of the Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook, will help you develop a nuanced understanding of different types of wool. She'll also share her secrets to effective swatching and tips on tracking down breed-specific yarns. The educational experience isn't confined to the classroom; you'll tag along with Deborah as she explores a wool market, meeting shepherds, vendors and sheep along the way.
