  • Overview

      Montrose Farms is pleased to offer a drop spindle class taught by Carole of Carole Makes.

      Drop spindles, or hand spindles, have been around for 12,000 years since the Neolithic era of the Stone Age, when the first farming developments appeared. Drop spindles consist of a shaft with a hook on the end and a whorl, or cylinder, to help it spin while being suspended from the spinner’s hands.

      Drop spindles and 4 oz. of carded alpaca fiber are included in the cost of the class and are yours to keep!

      Time will be allotted to meet the alpacas whose fleece you’ll be spinning.

      Class size is limited.

      Please note: there are dogs, cats and other animals on the property.
      *No public toilet facility available.

      Rain or shine event.
