Webinar 4: Weaving with Long and Fine wool

Speaker: Deborah Livingston-Lowe
Date: Saturday, June 29, 2024 @ 10 am ET

Description: Weaving with wool can feel a bit mystifying but in this final webinar of our series, we are in good hands. Deborah Livingston-Lowe, of Upper Canada Weaving, will share a practical approach to weaving with Ontario Fine and Long wools. Starting with commercial yarn as a baseline and comparison for weaving, she will move us into working with more locally sourced, breed specific wools. This finale will complete our journey from Farm to Fabric, the fine and the long of it.
