Sheep to Shawl at the 2019 Humboldt Sheep Show
WE DID IT!- Jude Heraldson, Saskatoon
By Sunday morning, we had the Shawl woven, fringed, washed, and dried. It sold at the Silent Auction for $250, which I swapped for the tables fee (simpler book keeping for the organizers and us).
We got a lot of attention and promoted wool as a valued part of sheep production. Several new spinners and weavers were started. And, we all had a Great time!
So much APPRECIATION and THANKS go to all the volunteers who helped. They washed and dyed fleece; picked and carded the fluff; spun warp yarns in advance; spun weft yarns at the Sheep Show; twisted fringe; set up our display / work area; educated people stopping by; packed up; and just made it all happen!
