Some farmers put the effort in to bring the sheep fleeces to central collection points where they get just a few euros for the wool. The fleeces are then shipped to Asia where they are made into isolation material and are probably shipped back to Europe again. What a waste of beautiful resources!
For small quantities – for example in my shells + sheep artworks – a dear friend of mine spins the wool for me. For larger quantities, a lovely couple brings the fleeces for me to Denmark where a professional spinnery spins the wool into yarn for me.
A second life for Dutch sheep wool!
