Have you ever wondered how to get the colors you want?   Starting with wool dyed in three primary colors of red, blue and yellow and using mini hand carders you  will learn how to blend to get nine additional colors.  You will also do a blend of one of the 12 colors with both black and white wool to create a shade and a tint.  This mini class is designed to get you going on your creative color blending journey.

Samples will be mounted onto a board to take home.  This finished color wheel will be an  inspiration to spinners, weavers or other fiber lovers who would like to go home and blend custom colors with confidence.
