In The Evolution of Wool, Judith MacKenzie unlocks the secrets to understanding wool. You’ll learn how wool grows, how the thousands of sheep breeds we have today came from the very first sheep, and why this should matter to the contemporary spinner. Ever wonder why some sheep shed their wool or “roo” while others can grow their fleece up to twelve inches long? Or why some types of fleece lie straight and shine like silk but others twist and curl? Judith Mackenzie answers all of your wool questions, even the ones you never thought to ask! You’ll never look at fleece the same way once you know the secrets to understanding the many different types and how they came to be used in spinning.

“Judith McKenzie has such a WAY of conveying her knowledge of a subject she so obviously loves. I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop.”
“I could write the same review for all of Judith McKenzie's video courses I've watch on Long Thread, she passes down both knowledge and love of fiber, so tightly spun together one never comes without the other. Sharing delightful lessons and that kindle in the eyes along, too! Can't wait to start another workshop from her!”
