SO I am amusing myself by thinking about how to write POST APOCALYPTIC KNITTING PATTERNS my new project and how you could start each pattern with “subdue and shear feral sheep,”
SET UP WORK
1. Find feral sheep in an attractive natural shade
3. Shear carefully. Remember that if you can tame and befriend sheep, you can re-domestic them for a more accessible wool supply!
4. Spin 1-2lb fleece into heavy fingering weight or sportweight yarn (aim for semi-woolen: durable enough for your desperate lifestyle, airy enough to capture and preserve your warmth in this cold, dystopian landscape)
I THINK THERE IS AN ENORMOUS MARKET FOR THIS APPROACH
