True Cost of Wool with Anna Hunter
The feeling and smell of a brand new skein of yarn is magical, the way it feels in your hands and on your needles, the beautiful shawl or sweater it will become. But how often do we consider the people that have had a hand in creating our yarn before it is ours. Do we know what resources have gone into our yarn and who is on the other end. Do we really understand the wool supply chain both in Canada and globally?
This lecture will take a deep dive into the Canadian wool industry and focus on the land, animals, labourers, mills and transport of our wool. We will look at some of the barriers and possibilities for creating a resilient, regenerative and inclusive Canadian Wool Industry.
