If this is your first fleece, you have come to the right place!

The Lambtown Festival wool show is a great resource for a first (or second, third…) time fleece buyer. Not only do you have an amazing variety of fleeces to choose from, you also can see a wide variety of sheep breeds, talk to their owners and visit with spinners! In this workshop we’ll look at how to find the right fleece for that dream yarn you have in your mind’s eye.

We’ll look at a variety of fleeces, learn about the different wool types and what is their best use. We’ll look at what makes a fleece great and what you should be wary about. We’ll look at what to do with your fleece when you have it home. How to sort, how to wash and how to store.


Experience Level: no experience necessary


Students Will Learn: how to choose, sort, wash, and store a fleece


Students Should Have: No tools or equipment needed

Instructor Bio: Judith MacKenzie has been a working craftsperson all her life. She believes that teaching and working go hand in hand. She lives in western Washington, on the edge of the Pacific Ocean.


This workshop was recorded exclusively for Lambtown festival. Students who registered before the festival were invited to attend a watch party with the instructor, in which the instructor answered live questions from students.  The recorded workshop and watch party videos are available for purchase now through the end of the year. Students have the opportunity to watch each video multiple times as they work through the techniques or simply soak up the expert advice.


Buyers will receive links to download their Digital products in the Thank You page of the Checkout, along with an emailed link.
