This was a great mini class! She is filled with so much information on wool that to be honest I had never thought about before! She made me want to explore all types of different wools and I've fallen in love even more with sheep! I also bought her book to have as a reference book and it is beautiful! Thanks so much!

The instructor was great in her presentation. She is well organized and the material flows from one idea to the next. I enjoyed her trip to Colorado, my home state. I learned a great deal about the different types of wool and sheep. I plan to use this information when selecting yarn for my next project.
Thank you very much for making it a free course!!

This class was just what I needed. I am new to knitting and I was very confused by the yarns. I know I have a lot more to learn, but this class offered the basics and gave more information to learn about the various types of wool on my own. Thank you so much.
