When I first got my spinning wheel, there were two things that really intimidated me: (1) My wheel and (2) Buying raw fleece.
Happily, after awhile, I became friends with my wheel, but I was still wary of buying raw fleece. There so many choices and things to consider. I was afraid of making a mistake and no matter what I read, I still didn’t feel confident. It is an aspect of the craft where there is a lot to be learned.
So, when I had the chance to go fleece shopping with Esther Rodgers of Jazz Turtle Creations last month, I thought it was also a good opportunity to get out the video camera so we could share Esther’s tips with you.
If you’d like to learn more from Esther, go to her web page to see her class offerings. If you are in Europe, you are in luck, because Esther is teaching in Holland this month and I think there is still a space or two — click here for more details.
