Are you a knitter, crocheter, felter, spinner, rug hooker, or weaver? We’re looking for your input!
A working group made up of Nova Scotian fibre producers and processors is looking at expanding the local market for locally-produced and processed fibre. Thousands of pounds of wool produced in Nova Scotia are discarded each year. If sheep producers and other fibre producers (alpaca, mohair, linen, etc.) knew what fibre crafters were looking for, perhaps this waste could be reduced with economic benefits for all parties.
Please take 5-10 minutes to complete this short survey, and win a chance at an awesome fibre prize!
This project is sponsored by the Sheep Producers Association of Nova Scotia (SPANS), in partnership with the Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers and Rare Breeds Canada, and with support from the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture. If you have any questions about the project, please contact working group chair Ruth Mathewson (email@example.com; 902-897-7708) or SPANS Executive Director Brad McCallum (902-893-7455). All information will be held by SPANS to be used for this project only and kept confidential.
