The Modern Wool podcast is hosted by Lydia Christiansen and explores modern topics, questions, and techniques affecting fiber farms, cottage mills, and discerning hand crafters. Follow along as we share the secrets we've learned along the way about sustainable, small batch wool.
In this episode we’ll tell you about our relentless quest for balance; both in yarn and in life. We’ll also discuss our house DK yarn we call Verdant, and dip our toes into the history of a breed of sheep that might be one of the closest breeds to royalty that there is in the sheep world, Rambouillet.
Dive into the secrets behind Finnsheep. Hear about the fiber and breed itself, and chat with two shepherdesses who tend the wool I’ve been spinning this month. I’ve even got a hot tip on where you can purchase these brand new small batch yarns.
In this inaugural episode of Modern Wool, Lydia shares an intimate look at the genesis of her mill, where yarn comes from, and the value of wool in the modern world.
