The guild purchased targhee top, and distributed equal sized braids to whoever was interested in spinning it, in order to make a cowl. The spinners may knit, crochet, weave, or whatever, to make their cowl.
The finished items will be displayed and evaluated on the Roc Day meeting.
There will be winners chosen by the evaluators, and a People's Choice winner.

The Black Sheep Handspinners Guild of Ithaca NY, host of Roc Day, is interested in promoting and continuing the art of handspinning all kinds of fiber.
Member interests range broadly within and beyond handspinning, from fiber plant farming and animal husbandry to dyeing, blending, knitting, crocheting, lace-making, weaving, felting, fly-tying, bow-string construction and beyond.
We look forward to celebrating Roc Day with you on January 10th!
