Slow Crafting Podcast – Episode 11: More to life than merino

A bi-weekly podcast charting my efforts to incorporate a slow living/ slow fashion approach to my crafting life through knitting, spinning and sewing.

This episode I talk about my experiments spinning fibre from different breeds of sheep including;

Norwegian (Spaelsau)
Jacob
Masham
Swaldedale
Lincoln
Shetland
Manx Laughton

All fibres were sourced from one of the following;

The books I reference are

Deborah Robson (2013) The Field Guide to Fleece

Sue Blacker (2012) Pure Wool

British Wool Marketing Board (2010) British Sheep and Wool

About themanyknitsofnadine

Interested in all things crafty, I knit, spin, sew, crochet, quilt, grow my own and bake (although the baking these days is all allergy friendly) and I try and blog about all these things. I also host a bi-weekly podcast on incorporating slow living into all my crafty adventures
