Ballyhoo Fiber Emporium podcast for fiber artists and producers featuring farm tips, sheep education, guests active in the industry, farm updates, and more!

Episode Forty-Seven: Wool People vs. Duluth Trading Co.

For the genesis of today’s episode, follow @claraparkes on Instagram. Duluth Trading Co. would rather use polyester in their jackets than “smelly animal fur” - although the sheep on the ad is misleading. You can help educate by 1) calling DTCo at 866-300-9719 or marketing at 608-424-1915 and delivering a strongly worded verbal letter. 2) sharing facts about fiber and fabric on your own platforms to combat miseducation!
