Wool survey
« on: March 17, 2021, 11:14:48 am »
Calling woolly / knitty / spinny folks - but also anyone else, whether you use and know about wool or not.  Responses from people who don't like wool, and/or don't use wool, are also useful.

It's a piece of research gathering experience, perceptions and knowledge about wool.  Takes about 5 minutes (unless you are a wool nerd like me and write girt long essays for all the free text answers.  lol)


Edited to add that I have no affiliation or connection with the researcher or institution, I just thought it looked interesting and potentially useful.

If you would like to contact the researcher directly with thoughts and suggestions, she gives her contact details on the opening page of the questionnaire.

Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

Piggy-backing here:

If you are a producer of fine spun wool thread or can produce fine woven fabrics do let me know - my son might be interested.
