Learn the basic techniques of carding, making a rolag, drawing out the thread and spinning the yarn. You will have a go at spinning on a portable drop spindle and using a wheel. You will learn about strengthening the thread by plying; different types of wool; and have a chance to look at the sheep on the farm. Various different wheels will be available for you to try. Bring along your own wheel if you have one.
