Know Your Animal Fiber 

Ever wondered why your alpaca sweater became a dress by lunch? Or why your shawl doesn’t drape elegantly over your shoulders as you imagined? Your choice of yarn plays an important role in your finished project! We’ll discuss wool, alpaca, and llama, with a bit of the luxury fibers thrown in, as well as how twist, plies, drape, halo, and fiber composition affect your final product. This interactive class is a great way to explore your options and expand your knowledge. Materials: Bring two or three patterns that you’re eager to cast on and plenty of questions!
