While you’re keeping your eyes on your drafting and your feet are treadling away at the spinning wheel, what’s on your feet?
Wisconsin is known as America’s Dairyland, but spinners far and wide know this Midwestern state for its many fiber festivals, camps, knit-ins, and spinning retreats.
When attending a fiber festival fleece-judging event, do you ever wonder what qualities wool judges look for in a fleece? We wanted to know, too! We asked the coach of a wool-judging team how fleeces are graded.
Whether you knit, crochet, or weave, all these crafts have one thing in common: they require yarn. Better yet, make your project with handspun yarn!
Facilitating the connection between shepherds and spinners was the inspiration behind My Local Wool, a website that helps fiber farms sell their wool directly to fiber artists and helps makers find resources for local fiber.
It’s sheep shearing time! The Museum of Appalachia, in Clinton, Tennessee, celebrates this magical rite of spring every year with Sheep Shearing Day.
In an effort to save rare and endangered sheep, The Livestock Conservancy started Shave ’Em to Save ’Em.
Colorado State University’s “lambulance” is here to help.
One of the spinning world’s ultimate endurance tests is Spinzilla, where spinners challenge themselves to spin as many yards (or meters) as they can in seven days.
