What you'll do

The hour demonstration starts with short description on myself and how I got to where I am now.
The demonstration is very much hands on, so everyone gets the chance to have a go and say what area they would like to concentrate on.
Of course if anybody does not want to its no problem I'll be doing the demonstration so you can watch .
- Then we will go sorting the wool
getting it ready for washing.
- The next process is washing the wool
- Once the fleece is dried we will start
Carding (I'll be using a different fleece
Because it takes a while for the fleece

making a skein and tying to up.
- I will Finnish on natural dyes showing
how to prepare the wool for dying

Meet your host, Carina

Host on Airbnb since 2018
  • Identity verified
I fell in love with spinning about 13 years ago I get all the wool I use from our own farm and also from neighbouring farmers here in Joyce country. I love experimenting with dyes. All the dyes I use are completely natural and sourced here in Joyce Country. I have a large selection on wool showing all the beautiful colours that nature offers.
I'm the All Ireland spinner for 2017 and 2018.
I love to share my passion for wool with everyone and give everyone the chance to learn too.
