Fiber Nation Podcast Show Notes: Country Life
Spinner and farmer Kate Larson takes us into the barn and shows us what being a shepherd really means. Learn how she guides and guards her flock of 60 sheep, both on a daily basis and over generations. Because behind every YouTube video of bouncing lambs and bucolic landscapes is a complicated reality, both messier and more rewarding than you might imagine. In this episode, get inside a sheep’s head, learn why sheep are like bees, and meet a very special sheep named Joan.
Kate Larson is the editor of Spin Off. In addition to raising sheep and publishing a magazine she teaches classes on spinning and fleece across the country. Her approach to teaching, farming, and raising fleece is a uniquely holistic approach; learn more in this latest episode of Fiber Nation, a knitting podcast that goes beyond knitting.
