THE WOOL PRODUCTION CHAIN (10/01/2016)

Una giornata immersa tra lana e colori seguendo i ritmi naturali che la natura richiede per preparare, lavorare e sperimentare i processi di lavorazione della lana.
Un'ottimo workshop in compagnia e con persone preparate sulle materie proposte.
La signora Lucia è una donna simpatica e stravagante, disponibile e molto gentile e ci ha pure deliziato con la sue sue gustosissime ricette di cucina.

THE STORY

I am a felter, very fond of wool and I would like to recreate even today the supply chain that once was an important item in the economy of nations.
In Alto Adige we have some small family-run woolen mills where the wool is already selected by local shepherds after the shearing. My work allows me to recognize the inestimable value of this precious raw material, free and sustainable. We have created a group of enthusiasts who is ready to use this amazing material in order to create traditional artifacts as well as innovative ones, according to today’s needs. This virtuous circle, can create synergies with very positive impact on the territory. Today we hold courses, meetings and workshops in collaboration with many local organizations.

This full working day will be a complete focus on the wool production chain. I will tell and show you how raw wool is carded, colored and wired. We will try two different technique to card the wool and then you'll be introduced to the coloration stage, starting with the extraction of the color itself from seasonal natural materials (such as onion's peel and walnut's husk) and ending with the dyeing of the fleece. We will then have a lunch break in the lab before going on testing the wool spinning.
