Breed Specific Knitting - Anna Hunter

  • Atrium Inn 2889 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V5K 2A1 Canada (map)

Each breed of sheep produces a distinct type of wool for knitting and crochet.  Understanding the qualities and characteristics of these breeds will inform and accentuate your knitting. Texture, colourwork, cables and drape are all affected by the unique wool breeds.

This workshop will explore the aspects and features of sheeps wool and provide an overview of some accessible single-breed wools and the variety they can offer to your knitting.  We will dive into the history and tradition of these unique sheep breeds and their wool.  This workshop is hands on, you will be able to touch, and experiment with breeds in their different forms (raw, carded, spun and knit/crochet).

Participants will take home 100g of a variety of breed-specific yarn.

Cost: $130
