Spin with Ewe: Don't Be Down on Down Breeds (In-Person) 12-11-2022
Much of the wool from the down breed family of the sheep family tree are considered “garbage” or “waste” in the larger wool market. Why is that and is the wool good for anything? In this class, we will discuss the different down-breed sheep, their lock structure, and why it is an ideal wool with many different uses. We will dive deep into the wooly goodness with this class, exposing our misconceptions, enlightening us, and empowering us to give value to this branch of the sheep family tree.
This class will be held at Nash Lake Fiber Farm in Webster, MN from 11am-2pm.
