Wool2Ewe – The family box
At Wool in School, we believe that exploring the world of wool is an exciting and enriching experience for families and community groups alike. Our Wool2Ewe box offers the perfect opportunity to discover the endless possibilities and potential of this amazing fibre together.
As a family or group of conscious crafters, you’ll learn how to knit, use a lucet, and make friendship bracelets – all while discovering the fascinating world of wool and sheep in Ireland. Through our online resources and educational materials, you’ll also gain a deeper understanding of why farming on the soil is just as important as farming in the soil, and why wool plays a critical role in the conversation about climate change.
With your Wool2Ewe education box and online resources, you’ll have everything you need to embark on a new journey of discovery and experience the wonder of Irish wool for yourself.
