SHEPHERD’S WORK - A STORY OF TWO FIBER FARMS

APRIL 28, 2019- MERIDIAN JACOBS

MAY 19, 2019- HEARTFELT FIBER FARM

Robin Lynde and Leslie Adkins are local shepherds who have put their backs and treasure behind the development of flocks that produce beautiful yarns from rare, heritage sheep breeds. They are also members of our local Fibershed, an organization dedicated to developing regional fiber systems that build soil & protect the health of our biosphere.

Join fellow knitters in farm visits to learn more about the animals, fibers and practices of these two shepherds. We will have the chance to work with these carefully curated breed specific yarns, as well as understand more about how they are produced and the unique qualities that they represent.
