How woolly sweaters are made

It’s time for the sheep to take off her woolly coat, so we can wash it, card it, spin it, knit it, and wear it!

Enjoy this excellent video from The Magic of Making, a journey from sheep shearing to the sweater shop, as well as through a few fascinating factory machines that clean, prep, and spin the wool along the way.

Next: The Big Cloth (An Clò-Mòr): Weaving Harris Tweed, Crocheting with English Angora Rabbit Wool, Shaggy Lawn Mowers – Paris’ Eco-Friendly Park Lawn Maintenance, and more vids from The Magic of Making.
