Barb Mulock from Prairie’s Edge Wool Farm, Kleefeld Manitoba answers our questions this morning.
What do you produce and make?
I raise Shetland sheep and Angora goats. I sell raw and processed fibre from my animals, including washed fleece and angora locks, batts and rovings of various fibre blends (wool, mohair, alpaca). While I also sell hand -spun yarns, I primarily cater to spinners and felters.
How did you get started in fibre arts ?
By chance, about 15 years ago I a met a wonderful group of spinners who taught me the art. From there is seemed completely reasonable to buy a farm, move to the country, and start raising my own source of fibre
