The Art of Skirting A Fleece
by Michele Deluca
Michele will take you through the process of skirting a fleece. She will demonstrate how to pick up the fleece after it is sheared, throwing the fleece onto the skirting table and the parts to take off before a fleece should be put up for sale. Then she will welcome people to join in and practice, while finishing up skirting and rolling it into a presentable fleece ready to sell.
