Researching the Down sheep breeds for The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook was one of the most challenging aspects of the project, and the Dorset Down was one of the most difficult of all the breeds for which to discover historic information. With lots of old documents and maps and help from the folks at Rampisham Hill Farm in Dorset who sent copies of breed society records, I delved into the history of the breed and came back with cool stuff. The story is one of shaping a breed to fit a specific environment.

Printed document plus free digital version; 8x8" publication. This document contains theory and practical knowledge for fiber arts enthusiasts of all skill levels. The handouts are heavily illustrated.

Copyright: It takes a lot of time and significant resources to do this work, and I am self-supporting. Please honor the copyright. If you would like to use print or electronic copies for a group presentation or event or breed promotion, please get in touch about bulk pricing.
