The River Spinners are excited to be hosting Robin Russo for her day-long workshop entitled, “Exploring the World of Goat Fibers.”

Robin describes her workshop: “This spinning class teaches participants about Angora, Pygora, Cashgora and cashmere goats. We discuss the history, geography, industrial uses and fiber properties of each of these animals. We will card, comb and spin samples of each fiber in their natural colors and dyed. We will also experiment with blending and creating novelty yarns to make the best use of the special properties of these luxurious fibers.”

$40 for River Spinner Members
$60 for Non-members who want to join, $70 non-member, not joining
