What is a Fiber Sandwich, you ask? Well, a Fiber Sandwich consists of wool and other fibers (not necessarily animal- any kind of spinnable fiber) which are sandwiched together, divided up, and then spun. Sounds like it might be dull, right? Nope, it's a hoot.
Everyone who wanted to participate (including me) donated 4ozs of any kind of spinning fiber. Volunteers fluffed and spread the fibers out, layer after layer. They're just starting here- trust me, there was a BUNCH of wool by the end.
After all of the fibers were spread and floofed and sandwiched, they were divided out evenly- each person who donated fiber got a bag of assorted fibers. The above was my bag of fiber- quite a jumble, eh? All of the spinners then had this afternoon (and part of tomorrow morning if necessary) to spin those fibers any way they like, into any kind of yarn. I taught a morning class and had the afternoon free, so I decided to separate out the colors and spin a medium single, which I then Navajo plied for a 3-ply self-striping bulky yarn.
