Across Canada, small-scale sheep farmers are on a mission to reinvigorate the domestic wool industry, raising sheep breeds that thrive in their regional climate and land base. Learn about farmers' motivations, their dedication to climate-forward practices, and their passion for developing the infrastructure to ensure their wool is processed, milled, and used by businesses and hobbyists locally. Journey alongside sheep farmer and wool educator Anna Hunter to explore the unique characteristics of the sheep breeds being raised from British Columbia to the Maritimes, and how the qualities of the wool from each is best suited to make items from garments to cold-weather accessories to home goods.
