Sheep are amazing animals - not just their importance for providing us with meat and milk but also for their wool. It has been an important fibre for those living in cold climates. Many of us think it should be made more of. This talk will look at how the fibre is turned into a yarn and the tools used along its journey. The talk will include a demonstration of wheel spinning.
