I don’t do retreats often, so, if you’ve been one of the many who’s been asking, here it is.  This retreat will be packed with information not available in any other form by any other people.  To learn what I know, you have to do all aspects of fiber from a practical perspective.  The information I’ve garnished comes not only from my formal education (B.S, M.S. Animal Science), but also from the tremendous amount of hands on experience I have handling many tons of wool and fiber each year.  My knowledge is comprehensive and is compiled from not only shearing and raising the animals, but also from washing, dyeing and spinning these massive quantities of fiber.  Many of the things I’ll teach you, will blow apart some of the traditional indoctrinations you’ve been taught in the past. Beyond, this, some of the information will be the first time I’ve told these secrets publicly.

For participants, be prepared to touch live animals and get your shoes and hands dirty.  The only way to learn some of the things I know, is to actually look at fleeces on the animal and touch their amazing fibers.  You will be provided with fiber and lunch as well as a learning environment which is friendly and inclusive.

What you can bring, but not mandatory:

Spinning wheel, combs, hand cards, fiber.

  1. I’m so excited to learn from you!! I’ve followed you on FB for quite some time and have purchased a breed box plus scrap box. I’ve worked with mostly alpaca fleece, now it’s time to step up my game. Thank you for adding the additional class!

  2. Missed getting into your first retreat, I am not able to attend your second because of a previous commitment. YUCK! Would you be so kind to let me know if and when you have another retreat? I have been following you online for awhile. By hubby and I love your TV show and we miss being able to watch it. I live in Colorado so I am just a hop skip and jump away if you have another. Do you ever do private tours or sessions? You are fabulous and an inspiration to many.

      Hi Linda, well, I don’t do retreats often but may actually start doing more of them. So theres a possibility. The other thing is I’m doing the online classes which all have a live component. Please stay in touch! I’ll try to think of something. Nat

  3. Nat, I can’t wait for my return visit to the farm! I’m so excited to see you and your family again! I haven’t been back to Cali since I saw you last. I’m thrilled to be in this workshop! Now it’s worth surviving the holidays haha! Hugs till I see you!!
