Breedboxes

For nearly two years, Namaste Farms has been offering monthly breedboxes.  These boxes are a learning tool for hand spinners and fiber enthusiasts who want to handle various types of wool from around the world.  The Breedbox breed study is comprehensive and couples live Blogtalk radio with podcasts discussing the breeds and the characteristics of the wool.  Namaste Farms is lucky enough to share the expertise of famed,  Martin Dally (Super Sire LTD ), Sheep expert, fiber and show judge with the fiber community in all Breedbox breed podcasts.  Martin will  discuss the breedbox breed origin, fleece type, economic significance and also address the actual samples which were included in the boxes.  He’ll judge the breed samples just as he judges fleece shows and will comment on handle, micron, vegetation and, most importantly, if the samples you receive are representative of the breed.  Breedboxes are a fantastic tool to help people learn what to expect from the breeds they purchase and is a fun and interactive way to learn.

    Hi there!
    I’m so excited about your fleece. I’m looking into purchasing a majacraft Rose in the fall. Do think I should wait till I have my wheel before I purchase one of your boxes??
