Wool Washing Workshop This Saturday

Sure, buying raw wool is the most economical way to buy fiber, but then you have to CLEAN it.  Is this intimidating to you? 


 Get the confidence you need this Saturday at the farm - we'll teach you to skirt and wash your fleece with ease.  Make this big scary job into one you're not afraid to tackle, and take on any gorgeous fleece that comes your way.

Come to the farm Saturday at 10 AM for a hands-on workshop and learn how to separate the good from the bad, and how to clean the fiber without felting it. Turn your sow’s ear into a silk purse.

Observing is free - come, learn, get your hands lanolin-y. Take home some handouts and new confidence. Bring a fleece and we’ll skirt it for $10. We’ll draw straws, and the winner will get her fleece WASHED for free.

Rumor is that our web designer and fellow Gulf Coast Native sheep breeder, Shaun Jones will be bringing our two new Gulf Coast sheep the same day! (Black and white twin brothers… oh yeah…)
RSVP here or on FB or e-mail so we can plan a bit…
