I had a wonderful time teaching wool judging to these amazing people his past weekend in Binbrook Ontario. There was a very diverse group of people from producers, artisans, shearers, fair organizers/judges and even people with their PhD's in wool. Needless to say I also learned a lot from this group.
We had over 60 fleeces to peruse and learn about. Many brought their own fleeces so we could all go through them together and learn from both aspects.
I even go to try some sheep ice cream made by All Sorts Acres!
Any part of a sheep's fleece can be made into these pellets which are a wonder for your soil. Did you know that wool has a high nitrogen content? I learned that this weekend.
Such a special thank you to Melinda Ramsay of Lickety Spit Fibre Farm for her hard work getting this course prepared and providing such hospitality and warmth. I really enjoyed myself. 2 days of hard work for all but there were many smiling faces when the certificates were handed out. Thank you to all who took part in this course.
