Here is the 2011 State Champion Sheep-to-Shawl team, the Dream Weavers, at the Pennsylvania Farm Show with their winning shawl in Harrisburg last January. This team will defend its title this coming Wednesday, January 11. The team began meeting soon after last year’s win to discuss theme, color scheme, and design elements that would comprise the shawl to be created at this year’s competition. Practise shawls were created to allow the team to tune their dying, carding, spinning, weaving, and finishing skills. These will all be put to the test when the team competes against seven others from around the state. Pairodox Farm will participate in the undertaking by contributing two team spinners as well as a four year old registered shetland ewe by the name of Constance. Wish all the teams good luck and check this blog again in a few days to find out how they all did.
