I will always stand by the idea that fibers are very low on the prepping list. We know that there is a need for extra clothes but so few preppers concern themselves with having access to the fibers needed to create them. One of the best and oldest ways to make these fibers is from the wool of sheep. Raising sheep means a lot of things but one of the biggest is the wool they produce. They also mean delicious lamb chops!
This is an article about shearing sheep. Shearing sheep, like anything else, comes down to practice and technique. What can be done to make this task go faster and be beneficial to both parties. It is an amazing thing that we have found an animal that grows clothes! I know its not that simple but eventually wool will get you to clothes.
