Yarn Production

The question I kept getting from the children was "How do you get the colors?" They were impressed that it comes from Koolaid and Wilton's cake icing dye. I had samples of the fiber washed, in its natural color, dyed, carded into batts, needlefelted, wet felted and spun into yarn.
I first demonstrated drop spindling.
Then I showed how to spin on the wheel and explained the differences between the two. They were a lot more fascinated with the spinning process than they were with the animals (except maybe the llamas), which is definitely a first. Budding spinners?
