Tips for Marketing Sheep and Goat Products: Fiber
The Livestock Conservancy is offering two free courses on Teachable that can help fiber producers connect with customers. Marketing Your Fiber Products focuses on connecting and creating better communication between the people who produce wool and those who use it. This course will help both buyers and sellers of wool and fiber connect and understand the various social media outlets available. The other course, From Farm to Fiber Folk, explains the difference between wool, hair, and kemp and what breed’s wools are best for which projects. This course will also help you understand how fleeces grow and how to select a good one. Both courses are part of the Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em program that is working to make sheep breeds profitable for shepherds.
