Shave ‘Em to Save ’Em

About Shave ‘Em to Save ’Em

Join us to learn about The Livestock Conservancy’s Shave ‘Em to save ‘Em Initiative (SE2SE). The Livestock Conservancy identifies twenty-four heritage breeds of sheep as endangered. Twenty-one of these breeds are wool sheep with a range of beautiful natural colors from bright white to tan, to gray, to deep black. Each breed has unique fiber qualities and characteristics making exploration a journey of curiosity and creativity. As a whole these breeds tell a living history of the development of fiber arts in North America. Come learn about these breeds, their wool and fiber and how you can discover them for yourself through the Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em Initiative.
