Finally, I present the digital copy of my research notebook from my last semester's wool and spinning project! I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed researching, spinning, and writing!
The physical copy that was included at my exhibit also had my research notes on the collection from the Spencer Museum, but I've omitted them here. This notebook is meant to be educational to any wool novice but also helpful to my own organization and education. It includes the basics of spinning and spinning wheels, the steps of wool processing with pictures from my time at Pinwheel Farms, and also a brief summary of common breeds of sheep (but don't forget there's other fibers too! - llama, alpaca, rabbit, yak, camel, bison, silk, and then all the plant/cellulose fibers!)
I gathered this information through my own practice but mostly through sources, including books, websites, and people! Please take a look at my bibliography page for full credits!
