The sheep breed for this podcast was new to me, after all my years of reviewing. The Gulf Coast Native was raised long ago for it's tolerance to the conditions of the deep US south regions. But it lost it's favored position, and is now on the critical list of sheep breeds. The group 52 weeks of sheep included it this year in it's list to study. I purchased my fiber sample from Herie7 in the Etsy store.
I also spend some time talking about washing fleeces that are very dirty. Beside the dish detergent Dawn which is readily available, I review Namaste Farms washing products from Natalie Redding. It is available from the Woolery here.
