    Just listen to this episode on my commute home, and it was very timely. Canadian wool industry is much smaller that other countries but we have a strong community of amazing fibre folks. We had an idea to make a shot doc to promote out local wool, and submitted it to TVO’s (TV Ontario) contest. We made it to the finals, and waiting for the winning results on April 20th. : ) I hope it will be shown on TV soon, and hopefully will make others at least a bit more curious about this wonderful resource. So I do agree that making short film on wool industry can be very beneficial.
    Thanks for all your hard work on the podcast. I love listening to it every week!
