I recently heard an interview with someone in Iceland who claims that the wool of Icelandic sheep in the U.S. is markedly different from wool from the same breed at home in Iceland. I'm sure that has to do with the land/climate/conditions, right? I wonder how the fleeces of my Gulf Coasts in the mountains of NC are different from those in their home territories in the Gulf states. Intriguing.

I so wanted to go to this, but was just coming off of another knitting retreat and couldn't do two! DH and I honeymooned in St. Michaels 18 years ago. It's a lovely area, close to where I grew up on the other side of the bay. Happy to see the info about next year!!

I never win these things, but oh, I have to try. What a beautiful book!

As a very new farmer, I want to thank you for your work on rare breeds. Thanks, in part, to your work in F&F Sourcebook, I have chosen to raise Gulf Coast sheep. I currently have 3 lambs who will be ready for breeding next fall. I have the hoggett fleeces from the first two, the other two to be shorn in the spring. Beautiful, beautiful fleeces, both of them. Would love to have you do some of these workshops at SAFF--we're no MDS&W, but I have been trying to grow our fleece show. I am hoping to go to the ALBC conference in November. Thank you and thank Carol for your efforts that are encouraging people like to me go into the field (literally) with these rare breeds.
