Native America Calling

July 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Today, July 12, 2021 – Sheep to loom: Native wool processing and fiber working

Navajo sheep herders are usually busy at this time of year. Depending on the size of their herd, shearing sheep is is a process that can take weeks. Clipping raw wool from sheep is one of the first steps to making famous Navajo rugs and dresses. Weavers then take over to process and dye wool and spin it into yarn. We’ll talk with sheep herders and weavers about the cultural and artistic process of taking wool from sheep to the loom (this is an encore show so we aren’t taking calls live on the air).
