1 – 4 pm: Spin City Fleece to Shawl Demo

The Spin City fleece-to-shawl team is practicing for a competition to be held this fall at the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival, Rhinebeck, NY, Sunday, October 19, 2014.  Our team lives or works in and around New York City.  We share a love for fiber and textiles.  In our free time, we meet regularly and prepare fiber, spin yarn, knit, crochet or weave.  We will card the washed fleece by hand, spin it on our wheels, and weave it on the loom.  The loom has been threaded in advance with handspun warp.  The entire process, from washed fleece to woven 18” x 72” shawl, will be completed in three hours. We hope.
