Resource Description

Students will get hooked on wool spinning as they learn about wool and where it comes from. Using carded wool and spinning hooks, students will create friendship bracelets to wear home! For more information on spinning and dyeing wool, please download our Wool Spinning lesson (included with kit). Also, check out Weaving the Rainbow, an excellent companion book for this activity.

For further hands-on wool activities download this PDF, Hands-On With Wool. This document includes 5 different wool activities: spinning, Kool-Aid dying, natural dying, weaving the wool, and Ziploc felting. Detailed instructions and a materials list can also be located within this document.

Kit generously donated by the Oregon Sheep Commission.

Kit includes wool and spinning hooks for 25 students. Please put the number of students in your class in the quantity section at checkout to ensure the correct number of supplies gets to you. This kit does not need to be returned.
