Sheep Shearers: In Vogue

In the October 20th American Sheep Industry Weekly,  I read a headline titled “Women Shearers Featured in Vogue “.  I was surprised to see an article about shearing in Vogue. At the same time, I was thinking….this is awesome!

Of course, I clicked on the link and read the article; the featured shearers share their stories, passion, dedication and unexpected rewards obtain through shearing. Hopefully, anyone who reads the article will gain a new appreciation for all of their dedication and work and gain a better understanding of the process from sheep to yarn.
