Shepherd’s Cross, the North American headquarters for Gaywool Dye, is hosting a yarn and fiber hand dyeing retreat. Onsite or virtual classes are available. Workshop will be held Saturday, May 9. Full or half-day options are offered.

Learn how to easily create vibrant and uniquely colored yarns & rovings. Gaywool Dye is an easy, safe, economical, color fast and dependable dying product. Class includes all materials needed to take home beautifully dyed yarn. No hidden fees, rental fees or materials fees, all are included in the package price. The class is taught by a Gaywool Dye Instructor.

Shepherd’s Cross is an accredited Agritourism facility, and a “Made in Oklahoma” Company. The farm is also Animal Welfare Approved. It is home to a non-profit Christian organization named Heart of the Shepherd that hosts this event. Teaching basic agricultural principles and their relationship to the Bible are instrumental in the educational component of the farm.
