The Native American Wool Project
Last September the Black Mesa Water Coalition (BMWC), a group of Navajos in Northeast Arizona, invited Peter Hagerty of Peace Fleece to visit native sheep ranchers with whom they work. This spring Peace Fleece formed a partnership with the ranchers called the Black Mesa Wool Project. The goal is to support these ranchers' traditional pastoral way of life by working with them to improve their soils and grazing patterns and receive a better price for their wool. Peter will talk about this new venture and a similar project working with Lakota sheep farmers in South Dakota. For more information about Peace Fleece, visit www.peacefleece.com

Will Natural Fibers Survive our High-tech World?
Wild, wooly and endangered? Wool is natural and renewable, yet the global flock continues to dwindle. As wool production declines, it not only changes the face of the landscape, but of those who have dwelt on the land for centuries. Will wool survive our high-tech world?
