About Carey Fleiner

  • I learnt embroider, knit, and crochet whilst still in single digits, and I has been spinning and weaving for about 30 years.
  • I have exhibited award-winning work in many fibre shows mainly in the United States including the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.
  • As an historian of Classical history (University of Winchester) I am keen on the history of spinning and weaving, especially in Classical Antiquity, and have given public talks on sheep, wool production, and wool in Classical culture and society.
  • Craftswork focuses on long-draw wool spinning, Wool-combing, Working with exotic fibres,  Nalbinding
