Sheep, Wool & Fiber Festival Reminder of Connecticut’s Agricultural Heritage

For Connecticut sheep farmers, with spring comes lambing, shearing, skirting (the process of removing dirty, coarse or contaminated sections of the fleece), and preparing the wool for spinning, weaving, knitting, and crocheting. The Connecticut Sheep Breeders Association, Inc. (CSBA), formed 122 years ago, is the organization that provides expertise and resources to help farmers with breeding, maintaining a healthy and productive flock, and marketing their products. On Saturday, April 25, it will be hosting the 106th Annual Sheep, Wool & Fiber Festival to showcase all the products and programs available to members and the general public.
