Goodbye 2012! It was a good year for spinning projects and other things in my life. This short podcast talks about how I look at the new year.

The first section of the podcast is a review of the Katahdan breed, also called the hair sheep. Because these fleeces contain a large amount of hair like fiber, I also discuss the process known as dehairing. Carolina Homespun is one of the mills that currently has a machine to do this process, and they show it being done in this Youtube video.
I mentioned previously talking about pygora, and that I would list the episode link, but right now I can not find that I actually did talk about this fiber....I may have to remedy that soon!
Music is from MusicAlley The new theme song is Spin-A Song for Children of all ages by Jon Caspi and the First Guns. Ordinary Day is sung by Great Big Sea The closing song, to get us all in the holiday spirit is The Christmas Song, in a very special way by the Limey Birds
