Wooly Wednesday with Roy Clemes

March 10, 2022

Special Guest Roy Clemes of Clemes and Clemes, Inc. joins Cindra Kerscher to chat about flicking, hand carding and drum carding.


Roy grew up working in his family’s woodshop and is the younger half of the Clemes & Clemes duo, making innovative, generational fiber art equipment in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Clemes & Clemes is known throughout the world for the high quality of their designs, especially their fiber preparation tools. In pre-COVID times, Roy and his father travelled coast to coast to vend and teach at fiber festivals around the country. They regularly consult and instruct spinners, felters, fiber growers, and professional fiber artists in the art of fiber preparation. You can find their company on Instagram @clemesandclemes and visit their website,

Roy also frequently contributes to PLY Magazine and is the president of Lambtown Festival, the largest sheep and wool show in California. He and his wife live in the San Francisco Bay Area with their terribly cute toddler and two very spoiled sheep.
