Know Your Wool

This was a very informative class on the different types of wools and the animals that produced the wools. The teacher was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the different wools and sheep. As a new knitter this class was very helpful.

Great Class, Knowledgeable Instructor

This was wonderful, learned so much! Students really benefit from such a knowledgeable instructor, but the material is presented in a way that is very accessible. Can't believe this one was free!

Theory Matters...

Am just realizing how useful it is to know something about the origins of a skein of wool. This will allow me to ask the right questions and choose more wisely in my wool supply store, when I plan my next project. Thank you, Deborah, for a very well planned and animated program!

Know Your Yarn

Very interesting and informative class. As someone fairly new to knitting it provided helpful information about the types of yarn, their textures and what projects they are best for.
