City spinning fleece fiber into yarn

Slaine Kelly
St. Anne's City Farm & ecology centre

St. Anne's City Farm will be showing the process of taking sheeps fleeces and turn them into a jumper. Starting with soapwort wool wash - exploring the weavers garden and how to use the soapworts plant to naturally wash raw fleece. Then partnering with the Irish weavers to demonstrate the craft of spinning fleece fiber into yarn then we will run the final class of knitting with the wool. The organiser will go through the full process with the local community of Dublin 3 and Dublin 5. They will run the classes on the farm with local volunteers and film the whole series so that it easy accessible to everyone.
