Fleece Processing

Interns Nina and Katey and summer farm student Alison scrub fleece in preparation for the next stages of fleece processing. This spring, our flock was sheared and the fleece will be used primarily during the Fiber Arts course taught during the Fall semester. Processing our own wool, the Sterling College farm demonstrates a "closed loop" system as we strive to model the use of sustainable resources.
