For the Love of Place: Fibershed’s 2016 Wool Symposium panels and presentations will focus on regional breeding strategies, biological and mechanical technology, Climate Beneficial Wool, prosumption, true cost of raising sheep and making a garment by hand, the history of sheep production in our region, and a special visit by a distant Fibershed Affiliate community organizer who will share how their community is cross pollinating urban and rural sectors.

The Symposium will host a marketplace of farmers, ranchers and designers from within our 150-mile region who will be offering place-based goods and raw materials for textile creation. There will also be demonstrations on sheep shearing, wool grading, hoof trimming, angora rabbit shearing, natural dyeing, weaving, and spinning. Marketplace and demos are free to the public.
